This is the third of a series of intensive summer courses (30h) directed at university students and scholars who – regardless of their specialization - want to become familiar with certain issues related to the history of al-Andalus. 30 students will be selected from among the applicants (for the application procedure see below).  

Application and Fee:  Those interested are requested to send an e-mail message to infocordoba [at] casaarabe.es 
indicating in the message subject line: Intensive Summer Course Al-Andalus III. They need to provide a brief introduction about the candidate’s profile, including first and last names (maximum 300 words), and a letter expressing their interest in the course. The deadline is April 1th 2018. Those 30 selected will be contacted by April 30th 2018. Once confirmation of admittance is received, registration must be completed using the application form that will be sent. The fee for the course is 300 €

Students are not required to have knowledge of Arabic or any other language except English; for those who are proficient in Arabic, guidance in the Arabic sources will be provided as a complement. A basic bibliography of studies in English will be provided once the selection of students has been made and registration has been finalized. The students selected are expected to become familiar with that bibliography before the beginning of the course. A more comprehensive bibliography, including the most relevant studies in a variety of languages, will be provided during the course. As the course is intensive and text-oriented, students are required to be present at each class. An attendance certificate will correspondingly be provided. For those interested in producing a research paper, assignments will be given and upon submission (within six months) an examination certificate can be obtained.
