Second-year GPISH students visit Cordoba and Granada where they get to grips with the rich history, art, architecture and social, political and cultural history of Muslim Spain.
The trip contributes to the attainment of learning objectives of the GPISH modules in which the focus is on learning about the formation of political and religious identity through the medium of art and architecture.
For the students, who are accompanied by IIS faculty, this cultural and architectural trip complements in-house academic modules and topics related to History, the Anthropology of Muslim Societies, Art and Architecture of Muslim Societies, and Intellectual Traditions.
Additionally, the field trip may provide an opportunity for students to witness the contemporary use of the architectural sites. Applicants should note that the trip is dependent upon securing visas, and that visas may be more difficult to secure for certain nationalities.
