Call for Papers – Crusades without Borders

Call for Papers

Leeds International Medieval Congress, 2022
Crusades without Borders 

How do we imagine histories of the crusades without borders? How have borders – lived, imagined, invented – influenced and informed scholarship on the crusades since the Middle Ages? What does a history of the crusades without borders look like? This special strand seeks to explore histories and historiographies relevant to the topic of ‘Crusades without Borders’ from the Middle Ages to the present.

The Australasian Crusades Studies Network seeks papers for a strand on ‘Crusades without Borders’ at the Leeds International Medieval Congress 2022. Researchers at all career stages and affiliations are invited to send abstracts for proposed papers on the theme of ‘Crusades without Borders’. We are interested in papers that explore themes such as:

  • Encounters, entanglements, engagements;
  • Divisions (historical and historiographical);
  • Distance and proximity;
  • Border policing;
  • Gender;
  • Race;
  • Theoretical and methodological issues.

Please submit abstracts of 250 words, including your name, contact email, affiliation to Professor Megan Cassidy-Welch ( by Friday September 17, 2021.
