Program Description:
Islamic Spain
HISP 261

In this interdisciplinary course, students will learn about the development of Islamic culture in Granada and Córdoba, the transition to Christian political dominance and eventual elimination of Islam, and the current debate in Spain over North African immigration.

During this intensive summer course students will be able to explore the political, social and economic aspects of this history, examine the intellectual and artistic developments and achievements that the civilization of al-Andalus reached, and look at its various contemporary meanings and legacies.

Through the engagement in public performances, music, photography, language and cultural and literary texts students will develop an ability to connect past, present and future through the creation of empathy and respect for those across oceans, cultures and borders.

Based in Granada, the program will include one day visit to Córdoba and a weekend field trip to Tangier, Tetouan and Chefchaouen (Morocco).
