Cult & Civ Mod Mediterranean

Cultures and Civilizations in the Modern History of the Mediterranean (15th- to 21st-Centuries)

This course is designed to study the most important events that took place in and around the Mediterranean sea from the 15th-century to contemporary times. It covers the origin, development, and consolidation of the different cultures and civilizations that characterize the Mediterranean countries. Special relevance is given to the political, philosophical, religious, and literary ideas that contribute to the creation of such cultures. The main goal of this course is to understand and assimilate such historical processes and the nature of each culture and civilization in the context of the Mediterranean sea. In class, we will analyze, comment, and discuss primary sources—translated into Spanish—from the period, especially documents and historical sources, as well as historical studies by contemporary historians.
