Upcoming After Empire sessions at the Leeds International Medieval Congress 2017

After Empire is very pleased to announce our two sessions “Tenth-Century Uses of the Past” at the 2017 International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds. Both of our panels ask how authors and communities dealt with, imagined, used and not used the various pasts available to them after the end of the Carolingian Empire. Our first session focuses on bishops, law and liturgy, while our second examines communities remembering kings and bishops.
