GLSP/HIST-398  Cityscapes, Cultural and Historical Encounters: Andalusian Spain and Morocco

This course introduces students to two extremely diverse regions of the Mediterranean: Morocco, sitting in the western end of the African continent and Spain, its neighbor to the north. Both regions, that were at one time one political entity, have had significant contact with each other, as well as with other foreign players, throughout their history. The major cities of Andalusian Spain, as well as those of the north and coastlines of Morocco, are a testament of this history of encounters, conquest, colonization, and displacements. In their layout, architecture, monuments, markets, palaces, neighborhoods, places of worship and institutions, we can study this rich cultural and political history and examine the influences that persist to this day as populations of immigrants continue to move back and forth.

Prerequisite: Fall semester prior to JT'19 departure, students will be required to enroll and participate in the IDST 098 Orientation to International Study (1 credit).
