    University of Toronto, Centre for Medieval Studies, Jan. 13 Convivium

    Sebastian Sobecki, University of Toronto, will deliver a lecture entitled "News from the Archive: An Unknown Personal Manuscript by Thomas Hoccleve" Friday Jan. 13 2:30-4:30pm; event both in person and on Zoom (Zoom. Meeting ID: 895 5163 1921 Passcode: 737825) from Lillian Massey Building, LI301, 125 Queen's Park, 3rd Floor

    Abstract: Thomas Hoccleve (1368-1426) has emerged as a leading English fifteenth-century poet. His deeply autobiographical work has been celebrated as intimate and modern, original and arresting. Hoccleve was also a professional government clerk, toiling for 40 years in the Privy Seal Office, and his handwriting is the best known of all medieval English scribes. He appears to have been in charge of promoting Chaucer’s reputation after his death, and he may have been responsible for London’s emerging literary scene. This talk will reveal, for the first time, a hitherto unknown personal manuscript by Hoccleve.

    The Tenth Annual Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies (June 12-14, 2023) is a convenient summer venue in North America for scholars to present papers, organize sessions, participate in roundtables, and engage in interdisciplinary discussion. The goal of the Symposium is to promote serious scholarly investigation into all topics and in all disciplines of medieval and Renaissance studies.

    The plenary speakers for this year will be Uta-Renate Blumenthal, of the Catholic University of America, and Lia Markey, of the Newberry Library, Chicago.

    The Symposium is held annually on the beautiful midtown St. Louis campus of Saint Louis University. On campus housing options include affordable, air-conditioned apartments as well as a more luxurious hotel. Inexpensive meal plans are also available, although there is a wealth of restaurants, bars, and cultural venues within easy walking distance of campus.

    While attending the Symposium, participants are free to use the Vatican Film Library, the Rare Books Division, and the general collection at Saint Louis University's Pius XII Memorial Library. These collections offer access to tens of thousands of medieval and early modern manuscripts on microfilm as well as strong holdings in medieval and Renaissance history, literature, languages, manuscript studies, theology, philosophy, and canon law. The Jesuit Archives & Research Center is adjacent to the university and also accessible to Symposium attendees.

    The Tenth Annual Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies invites proposals for papers, complete sessions, and roundtables. Any topics regarding the scholarly investigation of the medieval and early modern world are welcome. Papers are normally twenty minutes each and sessions are scheduled for ninety minutes. Scholarly organizations are especially encouraged to sponsor proposals for complete sessions, and organizing at least two sessions in coordination with each other is highly recommended.

    Submission are currently open and the deadline for all proposals is December 31, 2022. Decisions will be made by the end of January and the final program will be published in March.
