In April we started the video series “The History of Spain: Land on a Crossroad.” We will continue with this series for the month of May.
Spain has played a unique and pivotal role in western civilization. It has historically stood at a critical crossroad-a crossroad of geography, of cultures, of religions, of ideas, of trade, and more. Spain’s strategic location through the centuries has made it a magnet for multiple different peoples, and it has participated in and witnessed numerous major shifts, trends, and historical moments.
This course is taught by Joyce E. Salisbury, Professor Emerita of Humanistic Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. She earned her Ph.D. in Medieval History at Rutgers University. Professor Salisbury began her career performing research in Spain, and she has continued to travel there to conduct further research, lecture, and guide students and other travelers.
