Welcome to the website for The Margery Kempe Society! We are delighted to launch the Society, which is founded by Laura Kalas Williams (Swansea University) and Laura Varnam (Oxford University). The Society exists as a fully-inclusive space to support, and to promote, the scholarship, study, and teaching of The Book of Margery Kempe.

Follow the Society on Twitter at @margerysociety

Email us at margerykempesociety@gmail.com or use the Contact Page on this website.

If you’d like to be added to the membership list then please contact us with your name and email address. Please note that we will include all members’ email addresses publicly in the list, for the purposes of group collaboration, unless you request otherwise.

We will be posting resources including bibliographies, pedagogical materials and articles. Teaching resources will come from our collective supplies, so if you have any resources or syllabi you’d be happy to share with other members, please email them to us. Any information regarding Margery Kempe-flavoured events will also be posted – please let us know if you have any events that we can publicise.

There is a space for blog articles that is open for guest contributions. Please get in touch if you would like to contribute a blog post about any aspect of Margery Kempe.

You can sign up to receive email alerts, and comment to offer suggestions, contributions, or resources. We would love to hear from you.
