SPAN 4403 - Hispanoarabic Culture

Prerequisite: 2000-level ARBC or SPAN course or testing placement. This interdisciplinary course explores the cultural interactions of the Mediterranean Hispano-Arabic societies spanning from the Muslim invasion/ "openings" of the Iberian Peninsula in 711 to contemporary times. Musical recordings, dance, visual arts and architecture, prose, poetry, and secondary readings will help students explore and trace back the history of uniquely sophisticated cultures that not only flourished in the Iberian Peninsula and the Arab-Muslim world at the time but that is still relevant to, and worth studying in, our world today. Cross-listed with ARBC 4403 . 3 credits.
