This common ground is constituted by our shared interest in the construction, use and regulation of the memories and legacies of Al-Andalus, Sefarad and Iberia as historical, geopolitical and cultural concepts. However, while the Seminario focuses on the XVI and early XVII centuries in Counter Reformation Europe, ‘Travelling Concepts’ has a broader chronological and geo-cultural scope. The second workshop will therefore range from the Middle Ages to the present, in order to set our collaborative research into a broader conceptual and comparative frame. It therefore consolidates and develops lines of research conducted with other national and international partners, such as the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies and, most recently, Istanbul’s Scientific Studies Association (ILEM), who hosted the conference ‘.
In addition to members of the Travelling Concepts research strand and other King's colleagues and PhD students, participants will include: David Torollo (Cervantes Institute, Cairo), Maria Filomena Lopes de Barros (Universidade de
Évora), Fabrizio Boscaglia (Universidade Lusófona/ Universidade de
Lisboa), Maite Ojeda-Mata (University of Southampton), and María José Vega (Universitat Autònoma de
Barcelona; Seminario de poética europea del renacimiento).
