Coordina: Mercedes García-Arenal (ILC-CSIC) y Gerard Wiegers (Univ. Amsterdam)

This conference aims to bring together scholars who work on the movements of Muslims from Spain to other parts of Europa and the MENA Region between the fall of Granada (1492) and the first half of the seventeenth century. These movements had different contexts and characteristics. Most of the movements were induced by repression of Islam, later the expulsion decree forced Moriscos out of the Peninsula. But there were also movements back to the Peninsula, especially between 1609 and 1640.
