The poetry of John Gower has experienced a renaissance of critical interest
in recent years, and scholars are beginning to realise the potential of
subjecting his works to an array of innovative approaches. This session aims
to bring together a panel assessing Gower¹s situation within 21st-century
medieval studies, and it is hoped that we can define more clearly his
position in the contemporary academy and his relation to the London culture
in which he was working, especially the relationship between his poetry and
that of his contemporaries and successors.

Possible topics include:
