What’s new in teaching Beowulf? Professor Allen Frantzen, Loyola University Chicago, is one of the editors of Teaching Beowulf in the Twenty-First Century (2013). His seminar will outline recent classroom strategies for presenting the poem. Areas of focus include adaptations of Beowulf in other media; digital resources for studying the Beowulf manuscript; and updated versions of traditional approaches, such as using masculinity to emphasize gender and using material culture to examine history.
