Desirée López Bernal takes NAZAMER to the Athenaeum of Granada


The researcher of our Research Project, Desirée López Bernal, will give this afternoon a conference in the Athenaeum of Granada to publicize the scope and objectives of NAZAMER and its contributions to the study of women in Islamic societies of the medieval Mediterranean. The said teacher will talk about what research is like in Arabic and Islamic studies, paying special attention to the sources that inform us about these groups of women. Finally, it will address the presence of these in the literature of adab and, in particular, through the work of a 15th-century Grenadian literate, bringing us closer to stories starring female characters, highlighting the most relevant data these books provide us about the female universe of the medieval Islamic West.
