History of Spain – Wednesdays, 7:00PM
Winter Quarter (10 weeks): Jan 10- Mar 13, 2024
Muslims, Jews, and Christians

The History of Spain studies the Spanish story from the earliest days of the Iberian peninsula to 1700. During Fall Quarter we study the occupation of the peninsula by Celts, Romans, and Visigoths. The Islamic invasion of Spain in 711 sets the stage for our Winter Quarter: Muslims and Jews in Spain and the Reconquista. Spring Quarter is devoted to Renaissance Spain, with Ferdinand and Isabella, and early modern Spain. (Please see syllabus.) NOTE: This class is the first half of a two-year offering and will be followed next year by the History of Modern Spain course.

William H. Fredlund, the Director of the Institute, obtained his B.A. and M.A. from UCLA, where he specialized in European history and art history. He studied in Italy on a Fulbright Fellowship and completed a double Ph.D. in history and humanities at Stanford, specializing in Renaissance Italy. Dr. Fredlund has taught for UCLA, the University of Florence, Stanford, and UCSC Extension.
