Description

This roundtable is situated at the intersection
of crusader studies, art history, archaeology, and global history.
The goal is to explore what objects -- ceramics, glassware,
metalwork, textiles, coins, seals, etc. -- can teach us about
interpersonal, interfaith, cross-cultural, and trans-regional
interactions during the period of crusades, from the late 11th to
the late 13th century. The round-table will address the variety
of objects that have survived, will review established
methodologies of making sense of this variety, and will present
new technologies, which could be used in research, teaching, and outreach.
The roundtable will serve as a catalyst for a co-authored volume
on the same subject intended for undergraduate teaching and the
general public. Cathleen Fleck
