CFP: Touching Hoccleve

Call for Papers for 51st International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, MI: "Touching Hoccleve"

Deadline: September 15

Please send abstracts and inquiries to hocclevesociety@gmail.com
..."We invite papers that touch upon Hocclevean recovery in all of its facets and forms, including his poetic descriptions of recovery and its attendant affects, the recovery of Hocclevean material, the medieval medical contexts of Hoccleve’s infirmities, the work of memory as an act of recovery in the past and the present, the place of the text in all of its materiality as a document of recovery, and the blurring of financial, psychic, and physical recovery. In other words, we ask what is touching about Hoccleve's poetry - what does it mean to be touched by it, to touch on it, or to handle its material?..."
