University of Kent, Canterbury (UK), 13 April 2012.
The Fifth Crusade (1217-1221) was undoubtedly an important episode in medieval history, occurring during what was probably the most intensive period of crusading in both Europe and the Holy Land. But this event was much more than a military campaign. To contribute to the recent new directions in crusades studies, this colloquium aims to bring together scholars from a wide range of disciplines who are researching different aspects of the crusading movement around the time of the Fifth Crusade. Papers may be presented in English or French.
Proposals for papers (20 min.) are invited for any aspect of the Fifth Crusade, which may include the following topics:
Aftermath of the Fourth Crusade
Events of the Fifth Crusade
