Having been fascinated by the Middle Ages and the contact between Islam and Christianity during this period since she visited the Alhambra in Granada, Spain, as a child, Emma first pursued an undergraduate degree in History at UCL and followed this up with a masters in Medieval History at Oxford. Now she is back to UCL as a doctoral candidate in order to examine the extent to which territorial loss was perceived and made sense of as a moral loss at the time of the Crusades.
