Alexander Peña, a doc­toral student of Medieval Studies at Yale, inter­viewed Pro­fessor Nuria de Castilla about her work on Arabic and Aljamiado lit­er­a­tures, and, in par­ticular about her work with the morisco Qur’an and its char­ac­ter­istics. Peña and de Castilla addressed not only ques­tions regarding the past, but also more con­tem­porary sub­jects including islam­o­phobia and other forms of exclusion based on the practice of religion.
