The International Hoccleve Society is devoted to promoting scholarship on the late-medieval poet Thomas Hoccleve, provoking innovative research into the poet, and providing a community for Hoccleve scholars.
The Society was formed at Kalamazoo 2011, and its current organizational committee comprises the following members and roles:
Director: Elon Lang, University of Texas at Austin
Asst. Director: David Watt, University of Manitoba
Kalamazoo Organizer: Meredith Clermont-Ferrand, Eastern Connecticut State University
Webmaster: Robin Wharton, Georgia State University
Bibliographer: Helen Killick, University of York
Newsletter Editor: Helen Hickey, University of Melbourne
Special Projects Coordinator: Aditi Nafde, Oxford University
Adviser(s): Sebastian Langdell, Oxford University
The society has sponsored five sessions at the ICMS in Kalamazoo. The most recent was “Touching Hoccleve,” at ICMS 2016. We also publish an annual newsletter, continue to improve the Hoccleve Bibliography, and we provide support for the Hoccleve Archive, an online critical edition and digital tool for the study of Hoccleve’s Regiment of Princes. For the past two years, IHS has also promoted an annual “Hoccleve Recovery Day,” on 1 November via social media.
