Congratulations to Dr. Kevin Whetter


Dr. Kevin Whetter is the recipient of a Harrison McCain Foundation Awards to support his Visitorship to St. Louis University and the University of Southern California. Both Visitorships centre around Whetter’s work on medieval romance as a window onto medieval life, including ways in which chivalric literature both inspires and draws inspiration from late-medieval socio-political structures. For Whetter, this intersection of chivalric life and literature extends to questions of female land rights, manorial and monarchial rule, and a re-assessment of the attitudes to regional identities and violence in the so-called “border romances” written on the Anglo-Scottish border during the Anglo-Scottish wars.
