Adam Aaron

Doctoral Candidate


Adam Aaron is a PhD student studying the history of the Crusades and the twelfth-century crusader states. In particular, he is interested in the portrayal, form, and function of kingship and royal government in the Kingdom of Jerusalem during the reigns of kings Baldwin III (r. 1143-63) and Amalric (r. 1163-74). A time of relative “normalcy” for the Kingdom of Jerusalem, Adam’s research seeks to uncover the identity and direction the crusader state was moving towards before the rise of Saladin (r. 1169-94) and the end of Christian rule in Jerusalem.

Before his time at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, he earned his BA in history at the University of Michigan in 2014 and MA in history at Queen Mary, University of London in 2015.
