“1415: A Year in the Life of Thomas Hoccleve”: Hoccleve Society Workshop, ICMS Kalamazoo 2023

Our ICMS Kalamazoo workshop this year – “1415: A Year in the Life of Thomas Hoccleve” – is Session 306, a virtual session scheduled for 7pm (Eastern) on Friday, May 12. For this 90-minute workshop, we have assembled a virtual panel of participants to facilitate and lead discussions focused on the importance of 1415 — a pivotal date for several short poems and the approximate year of Hoccleve’s mental breakdown — on teaching and studying Hoccleve and his works.

Holly Crocker (University of South Carolina), Sebastian Langdell (Baylor University), and Misty Schieberle (University of Kansas) will lead the workshop, and Ruen-chuan Ma will serve as moderator. The titles of each participant’s presentation are as follows:

  • Holly Crocker – “1415: Hoccleve’s Illness, and Women’s Friendship”
  • Sebastian Langdell – “Moveable Feats”
  • Misty Schieberle – “1415: Hoccleve and London Communities”

If you are attending ICMS, please join us for this workshop, and similar to our ICMS workshop last year, the workshop leaders will each offer presentations (5-7 minutes in length) that invite conversations and discussion with each other and with attendees. We look forward to seeing you online!
