Faculty members, graduate students and advanced undergraduates are warmly invited to a one-day interdisciplinary research workshop, celebrating the publication of the first two issues of The Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies. Our featured speakers - specializing in the Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultures of the Iberian peninsula and the Maghreb - will guide discussion of recent and future developments in disciplines ranging from archeology to history, music to literature and beyond.
The Journal of Iberian Studies is a new peer-reviewed journal, published by Taylor and Francis, for innovative scholarship on the Christian, Jewish and Islamic cultures of the Iberian Peninsula from the fifth to the sixteenth centuries. JMIS emcompasses archaeology, art and architecture, music, philosophy and religious studies, as well as history, codicology, manuscript studies and the multiple Arabic, Latin, Romance and Hebrew linguistic and literary traditions of Iberia. The editors warmly invite all participants in the workshop, and other scholars working in these disciplines, to submit their work for double-blind peer review, or to contact the editors with any questions. Full instructions for authors and a free sample issue are available at the journal's website.
