Throughout history humans have exhibited an extraordinary fondness for "Anti-Heroes: The Villains We Love to Hate!" In this course we will draw from a deep pool of anti-heroes, both historical and fictional, to determine what human values create that magnetism, and then debate whether or not those values have evolved over time. Among others, we will zero in on Ragnar the Viking, King Herod, Pope Urban II, Saladin, Chaucer's Wife of Bath, and Bronte's Heathcliff of Wuthering Heights. Anticipate readings, videos, discussion, group work, and debate on why we think of some individuals as heroes or heroines despite glaring character flaws.
