Summer Abroad Spain, "Three Cultures of Medieval Spain"
Campus Location:International Center
Location of Event:UC Davis Campus
Event Type:Forums, Discussions and Information Sessions
Presented by:Study Abroad

The confluence of the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim peoples in Medieval Spain offers a prime example of multiculturalism in contrast to the rest of Europe of the day. This cultural synergism was fueled by the Arab´s superior material culture when they invaded Spain in the 8th century and continued until their expulsion by the Catholic rulers, Isabel and Ferdinand, in 1492. The cultural exchanges among these three cultures during the medieval period were all-pervasive, profoundly shaping the Spanish language, the urban geography, the architecture, the aesthetics, the literature, and the evolving Castilian identity. This program will introduce students to the legacy of this period illustrated by visits to Salamanca, Segovia, Hervás, Toledo, Cordoba, Seville, Cadiz, and Granada.
