Assistant Professor of English Katherine Terrell presented a paper titled "Politicizing the Past: State-Sponsored History in the Scotichronicon" at the 43rd International Congress on Medieval Studies on May 10 in Kalamazoo, Mich. The paper discussed a lengthy 15th century Latin chronicle of world and Scottish history by Walter Bower, and analyzed Bower's proposal that the Scottish government should collaborate with historians in order to produce official histories capable of competing with English accounts of the past.
