After Empire: Using and Not Using the Past in the Crisis of the Carolingian World, c.900-1050

Sponsored Panels, Leeds IMC 2018

The thematic strand for the 2018 Leeds International Medieval Congress is ‘Memory’. The After Empire project is pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring two strands of papers at the conference: ‘Remembering the Past after the Carolingian Empire’ and ‘Shaping the Past after the Carolingian Empire’. Both strands relate to the topic of using (or not using) the past in the tenth and eleventh centuries throughout the regions of the former Carolingian Empire and Anglo-Saxon England.
