Helen Coy

Helen is starting the second year of her AHRC funded PhD in medieval history in September 2013. Her research considers ‘national’ identities and religious culture in the 11th-13th centuries, focussing particularly on crusading. Her broad title is ‘the construction and presentation of crusader group identities, 1095-1291’, using narrative sources, papal letters and charter evidence in her research.

Helen completed her BA Medieval and Modern History at Birmingham 2006-2009, and her MA Medieval History 2010-2011, also at Birmingham. Helen has been participating in EMREM activities since 2010, and joined as a full time committee member in 2012. Helen is also involved with the History and Cultures Workshop, and is keen to develop the existing links between EMREM and other postgraduate groups.
