Aux Marges du monde normand (LEEDS 2020)


New Frontiers in Norman Scholarship

Leeds International Medieval

Congress – 7th July 2020


Org. : Battle Conference on Anglo-Norman Studies, Haskins Society; University of St Andrews (Institute of Mediaeval studies)


 Throughout the eleventh and twelfth centuries the Normans – ‘that most unbridled People’ – spread across Europe and the Mediterranean as conquerors, settlers, cru­saders, and pilgrims. Borders, be they geographical, intellectual, diplomatic, legal, spiritual, or temporal, provide an especially arresting way of examining Norman activities and the lands in which they dwelt. It is the intention of this strand to consid­er these borders – creations, disruptions, and developments, and their roles, signifi­cance, and influence – to gain new-found insight into the Normans and their World.
