Art, Culture, and Identity in Medieval SpainCourse Cancelled

Pamela A. Patton

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

Before the suppression of non-Christians in Spain and Portugal after 1492, three vibrant medieval cultures inhabited the peninsula: Muslims based in Al-Andalus, Christians based in the northern Spanish kingdoms, and Sephardic Jews throughout both realms. Their coexistence transformed their visual culture in ways that resonated well beyond Iberian borders, from Atlantic colonialism to modern identity politics. This course asks how the contacts, conflicts and compromises provoked by “living with” each other shaped artistic traditions and cultural identity in a land both enriched and destabilized by its own diversity.
