This course-workshop with 14 thematic sessions has as its aim to deepen into the different historical processes (border issues, ethnic violence and social violence problems, violence and business, day-to-day life, cultural and all other kinds of exchanges) which arise, are expressed and become categorised in medieval societies, from a historical point of view, having late medieval European and Iberian Peninsula territories as their operational base. The methodological perspective used, linked to social and cultural analysis that will be implemented, is enriched with transversal approaches and analyses about socio-political processes where the combination of History-Language, Literature, Sociology and Anthropology becomes absolutely necessary. With this we have designed a syllabus (see above) with a clear thematic sequencing which includes a series of lectures on the topics proposed and the aims that we will describe. Because of the actual practical organisation of contents, the moments for debate and dialogue will allow students to take part in them, additionally insisting on the need to reflect on the arguments suggested and to incorporate supplementary explanations.
The methodology combines synchronic and diachronic historical analyses, from a transversal perspective, thanks to other approaches coming from social sciences, together with students' interaction and participation. The units suggested will cover the following analytical patterns:
Finally, the intention will always consist in providing a profile about historical problems, past and also present ones. When we talk about issues of violence, segregation and social marginalisation of women and some groups, as well as ethnic, population and religious minorities, we can find past situations which shed light on social behaviours, cultural habits and habits with respect to the aforementioned social agents, both at present and in the medieval centuries; now unfortunately within a framework of blazing globalization which very often triggers the emergence of movements and processes of this kind.
Theoretical and practical explanation of the topics selected for each session through PowerPoint presentations and other didactic as well as technological resources.
Analysis and practical interaction with students through comments, criticism and debate on medieval images and texts, fragments of literary narrations, videos and other didactic resources.
Dynamic classes structured through short explanations enriched with short readings as well as items related to leisure and communication means, aimed at generating rigorous and entertaining visions about the historical and cultural processes under study.
Attendance and participation in the classroom through debates, previously prepared questionnaires and material made available for each thematic session.
Delivery of reports, summaries and cards about the protagonists, activities and landscapes of medieval frontiers.
