Dr Andrew Buck


Associate Lecturer & Student Engagement Tutor



I completed a PhD at QMUL in 2014 entitled 'On the frontiers of Latin Christendom: the principality of Antioch c.1130-c.1193' under the supervision of Dr Thomas Asbridge. My areas of expertise relate to the crusading movement, the Latin East, medieval frontiers, inter-cultural contact and the exercise of authority in the middle ages.
