Christian A. Johnson 215

Luis Miguel dos Santos Vicente specializes in consequences of the long history of conflict and cooperation between Christians, Jews, and Muslims for the literary and cultural evolution of the medieval kingdom of Castile and early modern Spain. His research starts at the intersection of ideas about translation, travel, and historiography interrogating how science, history, religion, and intimate contact between Christian and Muslims shaped ideas about identity and alterity from the 13th to the 16th centuries. He received his doctorate from University of Michigan in 2021.
