Dr Philip Morgan was the Fulbright-Robertson professor in 2001-2002. He is currently a senior lecturer in history at Keele University in the United Kingdom and has research interests in medieval gentry culture, the social history of warfare and the cultural history of water. He wrote a chapter in the late medieval volume of the Short Oxford History of the British Isles at Westminster whilst teaching core survey courses and more specialised options on medieval women and the Black Death. ‘My time in Missouri helped in two main areas,’ he now says. ‘Westminster was the first place where I saw how faculty paid attention to the ways in which they taught and their students learned. That has been vital to me as attention to undergraduate pedagogy has grown in importance in Britain. Just as important was the opportunity to make and sustain a great range of scholarly contacts elsewhere in the US through the generous support of a visiting lecture programme. My current research on battlefield commemoration was born through such links.
