Description

This session will continue the success of a series of conference sessions at the past two ICMSs at Kalamazoo, alongside a session at Leeds in 2016 and the Institute of Historical Research in London, for the Crusades in France and Occitania project. The goal has always been to bring together scholars at all ranks and affiliations to bring in interdisciplinary methodologies and a diversity of source materials to approach a common set of questions: what is the relationship between the complex regional identities of the crusaders who left Francia and Occitania and their performance of the crusades, and what is the impact of the crusades on their home regions and worldviews. This year's session brings together the re-examination of a Fourth Crusade text from a new perspective and three papers examining the work in progress of editing, translating, and studying the newly discovered "Siege d'Antioche."
