Kingdom, Empire and Plus Ultra: conversations on the history of Portugal and Spain, 1415-1898 is a podcast hosted by Dr. Edward Collins, a historian of early modern Portugal and Spain at University College Dublin.

I’m interviewed by Dr. Collins in Episode 16: “Moriscos, Enslaved Children, and Litigating for Liberty in sixteenth-century Spain.”  We discuss a range of topics related to the history of Muslim-Christian relations in early modern Spain, focusing on the research I conducted for my article “Litigating for Liberty: Enslaved Morisco Children in Sixteenth-Century Valladolid,” recently published in Renaissance Quarterly 70, 4 (Winter 2017).

Our interview concludes with a conversation about engaging emotionally & politically with early modern history, reflecting on parallels with modern and ongoing policies of family separation and internment.

If you’re interested in podcasts about Morisco history, check out Dr. Liz Covart’s interview with Dr. Karoline Cook in Episode 178 of Ben Franklin’s World: “Muslims and Moriscos in Colonial Spanish America.”

Enjoy, and thanks for listening!
