Description

Gower studies owes an immense debt to both the scholarship and the leadership of RF Yeager. Having authored, edited, or co-edited over eighteen books and collections, and over three dozen articles and essays, he has mentored countless junior scholars and fostered and shepherded the study of Gower over the past forty years. As President of the International John Gower Society, he has grown membership in the society from the handful that begun the Society over thirty-five years ago to almost 200 members today, and he has organized each of the five Gower Society Congresses which draws scholars from around the world. Given his 2018 retirement from the University of West Florida, and his transition to Emeritus faculty, the John Gower Society would like to honor Bob Yeager with a session of papers presented in his honor and that reflect his significant influence on the field.
