HIS 347 Beyond the Pillars of Hercules: The Transatlantic Empires of Spain and Portugal, 1492-1713 (3 Credits)

This course will investigate the Spanish and Portuguese kingdoms' earliest encounters with the New World, the formation of colonial settlements and governments, and the bi-directional flow of people and goods. Additionally, the class will focus intensely on the cultural and religious challenges that resulted from the secret migration of Jews to the Americas, as well as the intermixing of European and Native American populations.
