Welcome to the 38th Annual Medieval and Renaissance Forum
“Culture and Violence”
We are delighted to announce that the 38th Medieval and Renaissance Forum will take place on April 21 and 22, 2017 at Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire. This year’s keynote speaker is Richard W. Kaeuper, Professor of History at the University of Rochester.
Professor Kaeuper’s research has focused on medieval English and Continental history, justice and public order, and especially on the development of chivalry, with an emphasis on its nexus with violence and religion.
Professor Kaeuper’s research bursts traditional disciplinary boundaries, combining institutional and legal history with a strong emphasis on cultural, especially literary and social developments. His most recent book, Medieval Chivalry, appeared this past spring in the distinguished Cambridge Medieval Textbooks series.
Among his previous publications are Holy Warriors: The Religious Ideology of Chivalry (UPenn, 2009), Chivalry and Violence in Medieval Europe (Oxford, 1999), and an extensive introduction to Elspeth Kennedy’s translation of Geoffroi de Charny’s Book of Chivalry (UPenn, 1996; 2nd edition 2005).
