Kathy M. Krause, professor of French in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures in the College of Arts & Sciences, was recently notified that she has won a year-long National Endowment for the Humanities grant that will allow her to complete her research and write a book on the topic.
It’s not the first time her research has earned national-level recognition. In 2008, she explored the subject as a Fulbright scholar in northern France and Belgium.
This time around, there will probably be a short trip to France involved. But the primary purpose of the fellowship is to give her time to convert the massive amount of research she has collected into a published manuscript.
Krause, who joined the UMKC faculty in 1995, said the NEH Fellowship will benefit scholarship in the field of medieval literature and her students on campus.
