About the Society


The purpose of the New Chaucer Society is to provide a forum for teachers and scholars of Geoffrey Chaucer and his age. To advance such study, the Society organizes biennial international congresses of Chaucerians, publishes the annual Studies in the Age of Chaucer and a semiannual newsletter, and supports such important projects as the Annotated Chaucer Bibliography. Presentation at NCS congresses is restricted to active members of the Society.

Membership in the New Chaucer Society is open to all persons interested in the study of Chaucer and his age. Members receive subscriptions to Studies in the Age of Chaucer and the newsletter. Libraries may subscribe to Studies in the Age of Chaucer only.

The President and Trustees of the Society cordially invite you to join.
