Cullen Chandler ’96, Ph.D., has been appointed the 2019 Donald Bullough Fellow in Mediaeval History by the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and is spending the 2019 spring semester abroad working in the St. Andrews Institute for Mediaeval Studies on his research project, “Early Medieval Food and Culture.” St. Andrews has the largest mediaeval history department in the world. The residential fellowship, awarded on the basis of an international application process, carries no teaching duties, though Chandler is expected to take part in weekly seminars with other mediaeval historians, to present a research paper, and to lead a workshop for faculty and postgraduate students. When he’s not in Scotland, Cullen is an Associate Professor of History and department chair, as well as Director of the Scholars Program at Lycoming College in Pennsylvania. He teaches a popular “Medieval Food and Culture” course at Lycoming and plans to produce a book on European food history in the eighth and ninth centuries.
