Converso and Morisco are the terms applied to those Jews and Muslims who converted to Christianity in large numbers and usually under duress in late Medieval Spain.
Converso and Morisco Studies, a peer reviewed book series, will examine the implications of these mass conversions, for the converts themselves, for their heirs (also referred to as Conversos and Moriscos) and for medieval and modern Spanish culture. In examining the Conversos’ and Moriscos’ engagement with Christianity and the dominant, Old-Christian culture, the series will also reflect upon the broader issues of identity, community violence, religious intolerance, everyday resistance, and otherness in an early-modern environment.
How have the historical experiences and legacies of the communist revolution before 1949 and socialism under Mao influenced the course of reform and development in China since the 1980s?
