Domain (Anchored): ALV
This class focuses on the cultural production of the Iberian Middle Ages between 711 and 1492. Students get hands-on experience with artifacts of material culture, and analyze a variety of texts (short stories, epic, scientific prose, theatre, music, maps, etc.) so they can understand how these texts are the result of a period of great racial, religious, and linguistic diversity. The dialectics of social and military struggle for the political hegemony and cultural co-production is key to understanding medieval Iberian culture.
