Carolingian Catalonia: politics and culture in the Spanish March

I propose to finish a book manuscript already in preparation and consideration by a top academic publisher in the field, Cambridge University Press. The study examines the impact of the eighth-century conquest of Catalunya by the Franks ruled by the Carolingian dynasty. The focus is on the status of Catalonia--known as the Spanish March--during the ninth century. Specialists and students alike recognize the Carolingian period (c. 700-c. 1000) for its relatively centralized empire and its Christian-based intellectual renaissance. Thus, the central question of my project is how the frontier region operated as a province of the large European empire in terms of political networks and cultural programs.
