Module overview

This unit approaches the study of migration and displacement as recurrent themes in Spanish social, political and cultural history since its emergence as a modern nation in 1492, an event itself inaugurated by three major population movements: internal relocations of population during the ‘re-conquest’, religious persecutions and exile of Iberian Jews and Muslims and the beginning of transoceanic migrations to the newly ‘found’ territories of the Americas.
