A Word from the President

William IX of AquitaineWelcome to the Web site of the Société Guilhem IX!

We invite you to join our ranks, to submit scholarly essays to the journal TENSO, and to gather with us at the International Congress on Medieval Studies each May.

The benefits of membership are described within this Web site. We particularly encourage student memberships, which are available at a discounted rate.

The future of the Société – and, to a significant degree, the future of Occitan studies in North America – lie with our members. Whether you decide to join today or to renew your membership, a warm welcome awaits you!
