Best known for The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer's literary and cultural influence has spread far beyond the borders of his native England, but there has historically been little scholarship examining his influence on the non-Anglophone world. To remedy this, Candace Barrington of Central Connecticut State University and Jonathan Hsy of George Washington University have spearheaded Global Chaucers, which is an international collaborative project. This project aims to catalog, translate, and analyze the non-English adaptations of Chaucer's works occurring after 1945 and intends to become a searchable online database of non-Anglophone Chaucerania. The Global Chaucers website contains a lengthy master list of translations and adaptations, as well as resources for aspiring translators and guides for those wishing to participate in the project. The site also has some audio and video recordings of Chaucer readings and performances. The first Global Chaucers essay collection, Chaucer's Global Compaignye, was just published in June 2018 as a special issue of Literature Compass.
