Boardroom

The study of landscape and crusading conflict and encounter raises important questions about the medieval past. Landscapes shaped and were shaped by the conflicts that were waged in, over, and against them, while the crusades had a complex relationship with the landscapes they affected, from episodes of intense yet itinerant encounter, to protracted periods of ongoing conflict.

This one-day symposium brings together the following medievalists working on diverse areas of crusading activity in Europe, North Africa, and the Eastern Mediterranean; Dr Andrew Buck (Queen Mary, University of London); Dr Amelia Brown (University of Queensland); Professor Megan Cassidy-Welch (University of Queensland); Dr Anna Gutgarts (University of Haifa); Dr James Kane (University of Sydney); Dr Hélène Sirantoine (University of Sydney); Dr Beth Spacey (University of Queensland); and Dr Lydia Walker (The University of Tennessee, Knoxville).

Organisers: Professor Megan Cassidy-Welch, Dr Beth Spacey and Dr Kimberley-Joy Knight (University of Queensland).

This symposium is now fully booked.
