Indelible Footprints: Islam in Spain

SPA 587

Info tab content
This course explores the enduring effects of the Muslim invasion of the Iberian peninsula in 711 - its impact during the nearly 800-year occupation, and to this day. Spain's unique 'hybrid realities' of moros and moriscos in a predominantly Christian society, of mudéjares and mozárabes in their variations over space and time are a focus of our readings and discussions. Maurophobia as well as maurophilia, aljamiado resistance, religious and occult associations, inquisitorial practices and representations of gendered others are among the topics analyzed in literary, historical, and theoretical contexts.
