In January 2023, students enrolled in ENGL 511 - Advanced Topics in Creative Writing: Worldbuilding Based on Historical Worlds will visit several sites in Andalucía in southern Spain to learn about the Moorish kingdom of Al-Andalus and the relationships between Muslims, Christians, and Jews. Using the historical fantasy novel The Lions of Al-Russian as our guide, students will spend the spring semester building a fictional world, an “alt-Andalus,” that will include fiction, visual art, and physical objects created at the Construct @ RIT.   This Imagine RIT Exhibit will introduce visitors to the world of Alt-Andalus and allow them to learn about the people, places, and things in this marvelous world that never was.
