Discuss the role of Muslims, Mudejars, and Moriscos in Spanish Society until their expulsion in the early seventeenth century. Sources:(see chapters on violence in Ruizâ€™s Spanish Society). See if any other sources provided will assist.
What was the nature of Spanish culture in the period between 1300 and the reign of the Catholic Monarchs? How does the culture of Castile compare to that of Aragon? After discussing these topics in some detail, focus on Jorge Manriqueâ€™s Ode to the Death of My Father. What does that poem tell you about Castilian culture and values in the late fifteenth century and as to Manriqueâ€™s intent and values?
Sources: Manriqueâ€™s poem. Ruiz, Spain: Centuries of Crisis.
1. If you quote verbatim from a book or a primary source, the passage should be within quotation marks and properly acknowledge in a footnote or end note. You may use the Chicago Manual of Style or the MLA format (or parenthetical if you are referring to the same source. If so, a very short bibliography is welcome.
2. If you are paraphrasing information from either the texts or the lectures it should be also properly cited.
