A Work in Progress: The Hoccleve Bibliography

Thanks to the efforts of general editor Helen Killick (University of York), the Hoccleve Bibliography is now available via Zotero. At present, the bibliography comprises 224 entries for editions, scholarly essays, and monographs related to the life and work of Thomas Hoccleve, and we are adding new entries all the time as they are published or as we become aware of them. Under Helen’s editorial direction, IHS members are also working to organize and annotate the existing entries. When this next phase of curation is complete, the full bibliography will be made available on this site, and we will continue to collect and maintain bibliographic data using Zotero to ensure the bibliography remains as current and comprehensive as possible.

We are looking for contributions and contributors to the bibliography. If you know of an essay or monograph that should be included in the bibliography and is not yet listed, or if you’d like to submit or update an annotation for an existing entry, please complete the form on the bibliography home page. If you would like to participate in this project as a more regular contributor–providing ongoing assistance with updates, annotations, and research–please send an email briefly stating your interest and qualifications to hocclevesociety@gmail.com. Substantial and regular contributors will be credited on this site, and on the Zotero group landing page.

In addition to providing an important resource for scholars and teachers of late-medieval history and Middle English literature, we hope the bibliography will create opportunities for undergraduates to engage in meaningful scholarly collaboration. We encourage teachers to work with students to prepare and submit new entries, or annotations and updates to existing entries. Where desired and where attribution information has been provided with the submission, individual contributors will be acknowledged in the notes and annotations for which they are responsible.

All original content (annotations, notes, etc.) contributed to the Hoccleve Bibliography is shared under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License so that it may be redistributed and reused in other projects. We ask only that the Hoccleve Bibliography and, when applicable, the individual contributor be credited, and that the resulting “remixes” be shared under the same terms.

As we move ahead with work on the bibliography, we would love to hear your suggestions about how it might be improved. So, please, comment below to let us know what you think.
