Harvard To Offer ‘Game Of Thrones’ Course…Yes Really.

Yes, this is the state of the world today.

Mashable is reporting that a new Harvard course will cover all things Game of Thrones. “The Real Game of Thrones: From Modern Myths to Medieval Models” will use George R.R. Martin’s book series and its subsequent HBO show to explore what the show gets right and wrong about our own medieval times.”

Time says, “The class will explore how the series “echoes and adapts, as well as distorts the history and culture of the ‘medieval world’ of Eurasia from c. 400 to 1500 CE” by exploring “a set of archetypal characters at the heart of Game of Thrones — the king, the good wife, the second son, the adventurer, and so on — with distinct analogues in medieval history, literature, religion, and legend.”
