《權力的游戲》正式進入大學課程啦

   Since its inception, it always seemed as though HBO’s “Game of Thrones” was the bane of college kids’ existence — homework seems boring when compared to Jon Snow’s climactic battle against the White Walkers. But now, students can put their knowledge of Westeros to good use in a new George R.R. Martin-themed class offered by the University of British Columbia.

  HBO電視臺的《權力的游戲》自開播以來,似乎大學生們對學業已不再那么關注,反而注意力放在了雪諾對抗異鬼的經典之戰上。不過現在這一局面已經改變了,英屬哥倫比亞大學得同學們可以將自己從《權力的游戲》中所學的維斯特洛大陸的知識運用到一堂關于喬治·馬丁的主題課程了。

  The class is titled “Our Modern Medieval: ‘The Song of Ice and Fire’ as contemporary Medievalism,” and aims to use the popularity of the series to point out the way history is transformed in the public consciousness by fiction.

  課程的名字叫做“現代人的中世紀世界:‘冰與火之歌’,試圖通過該劇的廣泛認知度來說明小說是怎樣改變公眾所認知的歷史。

  “Martin’s works hold an influential place in the popular modern imagined medieval, largely supplanting any real notion of the European Middle Ages,” says Professor Robert Rouse, via The Independent. The presence of dragons serves as a clue that Martin wasn’t looking to flawlessly re-create the real medieval period, but Rouse explains that the series also offers commentary on modern day.

  在接受英國獨立報采訪時,Robert Rouse教授說,“馬汀的作品對現代人所構建出來的中世紀社會有著深遠的影響,可以說替代了關于歐洲中世紀的任何確鑿的觀念“。

  The presence of dragons serves as a clue that Martin wasn’t looking to flawlessly re-create the real medieval period, but Rouse explains that the series also offers commentary on modern day.The class will “be considering Martin’s works as much for what they tell us about our own moment,” Rouse says, “as for what they tell us about our ideas of the past.”

  作品中龍的出現說明馬汀并不是純粹的描繪真實的中世紀景象,Rouse教授解釋說,《權力的游戲》同時也在批判當今的世界。這堂課將會討論馬汀的作品給我們現代世界帶來的一些啟示,以及我們對歷史的思考”。

  The best part of the course has got to be the required reading — all five seasons of “Game of Thrones” in addition to Martin’s five super-detailed novels must be watched in order to be prepared for the first class discussion.

  課程最精彩的部分肯定是閱讀要求了—馬汀的五部《權力的游戲》電視劇和所有的原著小說都必須在開課前預習完,以便在課堂上討論。
