Remembrance Projects: Remembering the Crusades from the Middle Ages to the Present
This lecture looks at why and how the Crusades have been remembered as useful and meaningful events in a variety of historical contexts. From the First Crusade in the eleventh century to the use of crusading imagery by modern alt-right movements today, the Crusades have long provided opportunities to assert grander ideas about current interests and agendas. As this lecture will show, such ideas are linked to changing understandings of time and identity, both of which dictate the terms of historical remembrance.
