Shared Worlds: The Interwoven Pasts of Spain and Morocco


  • No instructors.


At the western end of the Mediterranean, the religious, political, and economic histories of North Africa and Iberia have always been intertwined. This was especially the case during the eight centuries from 711-1492 when various parts of the Iberian peninsula were ruled over by Muslims. In this course we will look both at how what are today Morocco and Spain were connected in this period in both history and imagination, and at how the Spanish colonial presence in Morocco in the 20th century played a important role in the Spanish civil war. The course will include an extended trip through Morocco and Spain.
