Since the attack on the Twin Towers on September 11th 2001, the crusades have come to the fore in political discourse. Modern conflicts between Western powers and predominantly Muslim countries have been packaged as crusades and the western protagonists as crusaders, and quasi-crusader uniforms and names have been appropriated to bolster the idea that participants are involved in just causes. But the modern appropriation of the crusades and their attendant language, motifs, imagery and ideas predates 9/11. The aim of this one-day symposium is to bring together scholars from the fields of modern and medieval history in order to examine the ways in which the crusades have been appropriated throughout the modern period.
