If Game of Thrones has taught us anything, it’s that fantasy is not escapist. It gives us a way to examine–and experience–what’s already there, but not always as visibly or easily acknowledged. We’ll read a wide range of medieval romances that use the genre to work out, and to stage, real-life political conflicts.
