    Research Interest 1

    Sizen's research interests lie in the ways in which convivencia, the interaction between Jews, Muslims and Christians in medieval Iberia, is manifested and explored in Spanish literary and cultural forms of the medieval and early modern periods.
    She specialises primarily in the Castilian frontier ballads and the ways in which these poems reveal the extent and complexity of cultural exchange between Muslims and Christians on the late medieval frontier between Castile and Granada. Sizen's forthcoming book, Frontier Memory: Cultural Conflict & Exchange in the Romancero fronterizo, will be published in 2013 by the MHRA Texts & Dissertations Series.
