Description

Much has been written on the Romance languages of the Iberian Peninsula after the 12th century, and especially after the 13th century, due mostly to the preservation of a larger and more easily datable body of documentation either dated or estimated to be dated after 1100. The studies of Ibero-romance linguistic varieties prior to the Christian reconquest of Toledo in 1085 are, however, scarce and far more polemic. This session seeks to bring together innovative research on the Ibero-romance languages prior to 1085, coinciding roughly with the colonization of Iberian territories by the Almoravid dynasty. The conquest of Valencia by El Cid in 1094, the particular situation of the Mozarabic population of Toledo, and the later Almohad incursions are additional forces that cause important changes in the linguistic map of Iberia after the second half of the 11th century. Any aspect related to the linguistic situation of Iberia between the Roman conquest and the so-called Christian “reconquest” of Toledo in 1085 are, thus, welcome.
