Still looking for a host for this month's Ancient/Medieval Carnivalesque. Anyone? Professor Noakes? ITM? Bueller?
Does anyone have a favourite Ren-Ref textbook? The last time I took a Ren-Ref course was undergrad, and we used Spitz. I know I would like to teach Martin Guerre, and will probably use Engels' The Peasant War in Germany. I might also use Scarisbrick, The Reformation and the English People and/or O'Day, The Debate on the English Reformation. But I really am at a loss on the Renaissance (apart from some Machiavelli and maybe More's Utopia) -- and I am leaning too far towards England (although that's probably a good thing, as the only reason I'm teaching this class is that the ed. majors need it).
But any suggestions would be appreciated.
