Architectural History of Medieval Iberia

Students will discuss a variety of topics, including the concept of “Moorish,” “Mudejar,” “Reconquest” and “Spanish Gothic” architecture through weekly readings and visual analysis of churches, mosques, synagogues, monasteries, castles, and palaces. Final projects will include a research paper as well as a visualization (via mapping or 3D modeling techniques taught by the instructor) on a topic of the students’ choice.
