Prof. Natasha Hodgson is the Director of the Centre for the Study of Religion and Conflict (CSRC) at Nottingham Trent University. Her research and teaching focus mainly on the Crusades and the expansion of Christendom, with a special interest in social, cultural and gender history: she is the author of “Women, Crusading and the Holy Land in Historical Narrative” (Boydell, 2007). She has also published diverse articles on Norman identity, political culture, animal symbolism, Honour and Shame, and Armenian Cilicia. She has recently completed an essay collection on “Crusading Masculinities” (Routledge) and is currently writing a monograph for Palgrave Macmillan, “Gender and the Crusades.” She also has a keen interest in Digital Humanities and Heritage Science in relation to manuscript studies, and is working jointly with colleagues in NTU Global Heritage and the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, (NZ) on a project based around fifteenth century royal genealogical rolls.
