If you would like to join us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a meeting link. We will add you to a dedicated mailing list for future announcements and seminar materials.
If you’re interested in presenting, we continue to invite brief proposals (~500 words) for topics on Hoccleve and any aspect of his works. In the proposal, please provide an overview of your topic and a description of your planned format of presentation. As a general guideline, we suggest having a presentation of about 15 to 20 minutes in length to allow for a stronger focus and ample discussion. Seminars meet for about an hour. Please send proposals to email@example.com with “Hoccleve at Home” in the subject line.
