Description

During the peninsular medieval and early modern eras, changes in context - whether political, intellectual, religious, linguistic, cultural, or literary - affected the always fluid reputations of people, texts, and ideas. As one example of the phenomena, after the 1492 expulsion of Jews from the peninsula, anti-Jewish texts translated as part of the Cisnerian reform read differently than elsewhere in Europe. For this session, the Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies and North American Catalan Society seek papers that explore one or more such examples from the medieval and early modern Iberian world (ca. 500 to ca. 1700 C.E.) and attempt to explain the cultural or political factors behind the changes in reputation or perception. While this session focuses on the Iberian world, we also welcome comparative papers that include Iberian examples.
