Description

The present political and cultural moment is intensely focused on issues of race, diversity, and inclusion. This panel seeks to address the lack of engagement with race and diversity in Medieval Iberian Studies, and therefore connect our field with other areas of medieval studies. The panel discussion will open between the panelists and the audience a discussion about the ways in which topics such as racial(ized) and ethnic minorities, the whitening of Iberia, the Middle Ages, and disciplinary marginalization have shaped Hispano-Medieval Studies.

Keywords: race; medieval Iberia; historiography
