2018 Congress

2018 Congress

"Toronto Skyline" by Laura Mitchell

Welcome to the website for the Twenty-First Biennial International Congress of the New Chaucer Society - Toronto, Canada, 10-15 July, 2018.


We wish to acknowledge the land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to meet and work on this land. 

You can keep in touch with us across social media by using our conference hashtag - Twitter, Facebook, Instagram: #NCS18


Co-chairs: Robert J. Meyer-Lee, Agnes Scott College, and Claire M. Waters, University of California, Davis
Louise D'Arcens, Macquarie University
Jonathan Hsy, George Washington University
Elliot Kendall, University of Exeter
Sebastian Sobecki, University of Groningen
Ex officio: Ardis Butterfield, Yale University; Ruth Evans, Saint Louis University; and Alexandra Gillespie, University of Toronto 


Registration for the New Chaucer Society Congress 2018 opens on 11 January 2018.

The Congress will take place at Victoria University in the University of Toronto, in Victoria College, Northrop Frye Hall, and the Isabel Bader Theatre.
