Event Description

Popular culture made medieval studies a hot topic, but since the September 11th attacks medieval history has attracted new acolytes among the far right and dangerously, among white supremacists. How and why have the Middle Ages become politicized and even weaponized in this country, and where we go from here?

Presented by Kathryn Jasper,  Associate Professor, Director of European Studies, Department of History, Illinois State University
