Prof Graham A. Loud (Leeds) co-ordinated a project on “The Making of Medieval History” which aimed to initiate an informed collective reflection on the impact of the knowledge and imagination of the Middle Ages in modern society. The project is based on the common expertise and interest of scholars at the three established centres of medieval studies of Leeds, Sheffield and York, their strong international connections and the attraction of the International Medieval Congress in Leeds. In a series of nine conferences and workshops to be hold in turn at the three participating universities the White Rose medievalists and leading national and international colleagues will explore moments, contexts, paradigms and topics that have played a crucial role in the development of the study and perception of the Middle Ages.
