Call for papers

The aim of the seminar, which is arranged by M. J. Driscoll and Ragnheiður Mósesdóttir of the Arnamagnæan Institute, University of Copenhagen, and Ivan Boserup and Marie Vest of the Royal Library, is to bring together scholars, conservators, librarians, archivists, curators and others who work in the field of manuscript studies, preservation and conservation.

Papers are invited on subjects relating to the care and conservation of manuscripts in the widest sense, including, but not limited to, conservation techniques and related matters, curatorial, codicological, philological and book historical subjects and digitisation.

The dead-line for submission of proposals is the 1st of February 2012.

The proposal should include a preliminary title and an abstract, which should state the relevance of the subject for this seminar (500-1000 words).

The principal language of the conference is English but papers in German are also welcome.
