Description

The work of Olivia Remie Constable provided both a foundation for and inspired many scholars to pursue new research directions in the field of medieval Iberian history. In particular, Constable's focus on the interactions between Christians, Jews, and Muslims, is especially noteworthy. We may view her continued influence in this field by considering the work of academics at a multitude of levels from graduate students to professors. This roundtable aims to showcase recent and upcoming research inquiries that both pay homage to the work of Constable and contribute to the expansion of the historiography on the aforementioned subject. By presenting these new research directions in a roundtable setting, rather than a session of papers, it will allow for a cohesive approach to the subject area. The interest in this field, as well as the question of "convivencia" is one which continues to expand, and will undoubtedly inspire future generations of academics.
