- About Me
I am a PhD researcher in the Department of History at Royal Holloway, University of London. My thesis explores how medieval writers chose to represent incidents of Christian-Muslim Diplomacy within a crusading context (c.1095-c.1291). This question taps into discussions surrounding the nature of interfaith contact in the Middle Ages, and will add to the so-called ‘Clash of Civilisations’ debate.
