This topics course addresses the development of Spanish culture from pre-Roman to Modern times, with an emphasis on history, geography, and cultural production. Rather than considering peninsular culture as a cohesive entity, the course focuses on the cultural and religious diversity that has characterized Spanish history since its origins. As students study the complexities of relationships between Castilians and non-Castilians, and among Christians, Jews, and Muslims, they will come to understand how inter-cultural conflict and exchange shaped and problematized Spanish identity through the centuries.
