Medieval Mediterranean History
B.Ed McGill University, M.A. Queen's University
I am primarily interested in exploring the Mudejar and Morisco experience in sixteenth and seventeenth-century Spain. I aim to examine the wider picture of the popular and learned religious/intellectual culture of the Mudejars and Moriscos-not simply the Islamic legal 'ulum al-din (religious sciences) but the philosophical, mystical, and polemical traditions. My thesis will be supervised by Dr. Adnan Husain.
