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

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.
