Since the start of the semester, we have explored the high degree of religious, ethnic, linguistic, and cultural diversity of medieval Iberia.  At that time, from the 8th C to the 14th c, there were Christians, Jews, and Muslims living together in complex relationships with one another.  These groups came from a diversity of places as well: Arabia, the Middle East, eastern Europe, Iberia itself, and north Africa.  We have also explored the later historical phenomenon of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939).  Here, as well, there was a plurality of religions, political ideologies, ethnic groups, and national communities vying for power and participating in territorial and cultural endeavors.   
We have, and will continue to explore a number of distinct themes comparing medieval examples to 20th century ones, including art (painting, mosaics, sculpture, etc.), architecture, gardens and public spaces, diplomacy and propaganda, gender and identity, famous characters, music and literature, and food and feasting.  We have but touched upon these themes in class, but in each theme there exist many specific examples that might be compared.  For example Picasso’s Guernica might be compared to the medieval frescoes in the palace of Berenger de Aguilar, which also depict a conflict.  There are other themes that you might have an interest in, such as technology; some of you have spoken about astrolabes in the museums we’ve visited, and perhaps these might be compared to technologies of warfare introduced during the Spanish Civil War.  
In this essay, we ask you to choose a topic that interests you and compare and contrast it between the medieval and modern periods.  ( my topic is  Islamic technology and civil tactics being used compared to the civil war)
Make an argument in your essay that clearly articulates one strong point of comparison about this topic across these two time periods.  Your essay should include the following:
with a strong thesis (argument) and
explanation of how you will make (organize) your argument, summarizing your claims (steps in making your argument)
Body paragraphs:
Well organized with topic sentences announcing your claims, 
followed by specific evidence taken from your sources (see below).  
Inclusion of specific evidence, well articulated through descriptive analysis.  This evidence must be of TWO types:
Secondary sources (ideas explained by scholars in articles or books)
Primary sources (texts and/or images/works of art from the periods you are discussing)
Sources must be both primary and secondary
Use at least 6 primary sources
Use at least 8 secondary sources
You must cite your sources throughout the essay and in a final list of sources (bibliography), using at the very least both Brann and Ramirez. (Feel free to use Chicago or MLA styles, but be sure to be consistent.)
Your essay should be 1750-2250 words, in 12 pt. font
