The International Piers Plowman Society
(IPPS) was formed at the 2nd International Langland Conference
held in Asheville, North Carolina in 1999.
oversees publication of The Yearbook of Langland Studies
(YLS), sponsors sessions at the International
Congresses at Kalamazoo, MI and Leeds, UK; organizes international
conferences on Piers Plowman; and maintains this website,
which includes information on these activities and a searchable
database of the annual annotated bibliographies published in YLS.
