Dr Godfried Croenen, a Senior Lecturer in French Historical Studies in the School of Cultures, Languages & Area Studies, will become a Lester J Cappon Visiting Fellow at the Newberry Library in Chicago during August.
Dr Croenen is researching the Genesis of the 14th century Chronicles of Jean Froissart and identified a unique manuscript of the chronicle in the collection of the Newberry library which contains a version of the chronicle that has not survived anywhere else.
The Newberry Library is an independent library in Chicago founded by a bequest from the wealthy businessman Walter L Newberry. It has one of the most important collections of medieval manuscripts in America.
The manuscript Dr Croenen will be studying was in a Welsh private collection in the 19th century but was acquired by the Newberry from a London dealer in 1937.
