Inaugural Lecture by Professor Megan Cassidy-Welch

25 May 2018 4:00pm5:00pm
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.

IASH/History Documentary Series 2018: Give Us the Money (2012, 58 mins)

23 May 2018 4:00pm5:30pm
Written & Directed by: Bosse Lindquist

Bosse Lindquist's film tracks the history of this project, as well as the idea behind it. It shows the journey of a campaign with a lot of promise, but very little tangible result. A band of musicians set out to change the world" Lindquist says "and now the time has come to ask: What did they achieve, and is celebrity politics the right way of combating world poverty?"
