Description

This session will resonate with the work of the 2020 plenary speaker, Sharon Kinoshita. It will also highlight the various ethnic, linguistic and religious histories of medieval Iberia and the Mediterranean. We envision including papers on aspects of travel narratives by actual travelers such as Benjamin of Tudela, Pero Tafur, Ruy Clavijo, Al-Wazzan, Ibn Arabi, and Anselm Turmeda or fictional characters in literary texts, such as Amadís, Alexander, Tirant lo Blanc, Curial and Paris.
