Islamic and Medieval Mediterranean History
The course aims to train scientifically skilled professionals in the knowledge and study of problems related to the process of formation of modern Western societies, focusing on the Islamic past and the role of the Mediterranean in the construction of Europe and Portugal. It takes the territory of al-Andalus as a space of observation, without forgetting the way it was inserted in larger cultural units (the Western Mediterranean, and especially North Africa), to analyze it as a space of coexistence between very different cultures and societies and to understand the dynamics of interaction and exchange, or opposition, domination and conflict that took place there.
Practical classes take place in Lisbon, and seminars will work in a mixed, in person, and remote manner.
