In light of the developing COVID-19 situation, The University of Queensland has taken important steps to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, alumni, partners and broader community.

UQ has made a decision to cancel all University events unless they are critical to teaching or research. This includes student, academic and public events on and off-campus until the end of June 2020.

Our thoughts are with all of you managing the consequences of the virus during this unprecedented time.

Remembrance Projects: Remembering the Crusades from the Middle Ages to the Present
This lecture looks at why and how the Crusades have been remembered as useful and meaningful events in a variety of historical contexts. From the First Crusade in the eleventh century to the use of crusading imagery by modern alt-right movements today, the Crusades have long provided opportunities to assert grander ideas about current interests and agendas. As this lecture will show, such ideas are linked to changing understandings of time and identity, both of which dictate the terms of historical remembrance.

A band of musicians set out to change the world" Lindquist says "and now the time has come to ask: What did they achieve, and is celebrity politics the right way of combating world poverty?"
