With season 7’s finale airing a few nights ago (read on, we promise NO spoilers..), Game Of Thrones fans have a tough year or so of waiting ahead of them.
To curb your binge-watching needs until then, as reported by TIME earlier this year, the University of Hertfordshire’s de Havilland will offer classes in medieval history taught through the lens of Game Of Thrones themes will commence this September 6th and 7th.
Lecture topics will include ‘Jon Snow vs Laura Roslin: The demise of democracy’s representation in Game of Thrones’ and Legitimacy and being female: Character arcs and storyline convergence in Season 6 of Game of Thrones. Now those are classes we’d NEVER fall asleep in.
According to TIME, Harvard and Boston University have seen a huge surge in enrolments in medieval and history subjects, with GOT acting as a major recruitment tool since its premiere, even though drops in humanities enrolments have dropped overall.
Would you be willing to pay off HECS on this course?
