The Institute for Medieval Studies at the University of Leeds held a special two-panel conference this summer commemorating Dr. Paul Dutton's impact on Carolingian scholarship. "Carolingian Civilization 25 Years Later: In Honour of Paul Edward Dutton", celebrated his seminal works Carolingian Civilization: A Reader and The Politics of Dreaming in the Carolingian Empire while exploring their legacy in the field. The conference organizer credits these texts as works which "reframed how we study the Carolinigian world and changed the landscape of the discipline."
