About Us


The Gower Project is a consortium of European and North American scholars investigating the effects of new technologies and cutting edge theoretical perspectives on the reading of and research into John Gower’s poetry.

Our various websites, each devoted to a separate aspect of our work, demonstrate hypertextual responses to Gower’s poems and offer online aids for teaching and research.

Our Co-Directors are Georgiana Donavin and Eve Salisbury.

This site, maintained by Georgiana Donavin at Westminster College, is our Home and Resources Page. It hosts the latest Project news, links to a variety of Gower sites, and offers an updated bibliography on the most recent scholarly work on Gower’s poems.

Mission Statement

The Gower Project is a network of international scholars linked through websites in the UK, Canada, and the US. Our collaboration aims to evaluate the effects of new technologies on studying John Gower’s fourteenth-century poems written in Anglo-Latin, Anglo-Norman, and Middle English. On our websites, we make available online tools for study and research. The Gower Project also promotes study and research by offering explicitly theorized approaches that are current and that highlight the sophistication and relevance of Gower’s poems.
