This two-day international conference brings together scholars of Islamic and Christian Spain to discuss how memories of the sacred and secular past could be articulated, constructed and revised in words, objects and performances in the medieval period. Spain is here understood in its broadest sense to include all confessional communities from the Iberian peninsula and dependent islands, and the theme of memory encompasses both attitudes to the past and also the arts of memory. In drawing on scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds the conference aims to investigate common strategies or alternative practices in the construction of memory in different forms and media, and the extent to which these may depend on contemporary theories of memory.
