Our guests for the third session of Iberian Con­nec­tions are Leslie J. Harkema, Asso­ciate Pro­fessor of Spanish and Por­tuguese at Yale Uni­versity, who will be mod­er­ating and responding to Borja Franco, an Asso­ciate Pro­fessor at the Uni­ver­sidad Nacional de Edu­cación a Dis­tancia (UNED) in Madrid.

Borja Franco will be pre­senting his research on the image of the Morisco in Early Modern Iberia, and has written an article in which he deploys some of the ques­tions in his inter­vention. He has also sug­gested some readings to prepare for this session, based on his recent book:

Borja Franco y Fran­cisco J. Moreno Díaz del Campo. Pin­tando al con­verso La imagen del morisco en la península ibérica (1492–1614). Madrid: Cátedra, 2019.

Spon­sored by the Department of Spanish and Por­tuguese, the Department of History, and The Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for Inter­na­tional and Area Studies.
