Richard Kaeuper published his general study, MEDIEVAL CHIVALRY, a book commissioned by Cambridge University Press. This spring he was formally inducted as a Fellow of the Medieval Academy of America (not being able to attend the MAA meeting last year while he was a Fellow of the Institute for Medieval Studies at the University of St Andrews, in Scotland). With the assistance of recent PhD Sam Claussen he continues to serve as medieval European editor for the Cambridge World History of Violence, in process, and has an article forthcoming in a conference volume from Pembroke College, Cambridge, and a chapter in a collection of studies on medieval romance. For a conference to be held next year in Stanford University he is preparing a paper on the teaching and research usefulness of sermon stories as evidence on crusading. During this academic year he has worked regularly with Shiguang Ni, a Chinese scholar interested in medieval European history, who came to the UR for this purpose. In a new course he has revitalized the research project drawing on English royal documents that was formerly a feature of his teaching.
