Summer School in Manuscript Studies has started

AM02-8 detailThe 8-day intensive course in medieval and early-modern Scandinavian manuscript studies has now started.

Topics covered include palaeography, codicology, manuscript description and transcription, basic editorial technique and the theory and practice of textual criticism.

The course, which comprises both lectures and practical sessions, is intended chiefly for graduate students (MA/PhD-level) but may also be of interest to more established scholars hoping to improve their manuscript reading skills. A sound background in Old Norse-Icelandic and/or Old Danish is essential. Familiarity with one or more of the modern Scandinavian languages, while a distinct advantage, is not required.
