Eighth International Summer School in Manuscript Studies

Applications are invited for this year's summer school in manuscript studies, organised by The Árni Magnússon Institute of Icelandic Studies in cooperation with The Arnamagnæan Institute at the University of Copenhagen, the National and University Library of Iceland and the Universities of Tübingen, Zürich and Cambridge.

See the Árni Magnússon Institute home page for more details. The deadline for applications is 15 March.

A maximum of 25 people can be accepted in each group (beginners, advanced etc.). If applications exceed that number a waiting list will be set up.

Please note that in addition to the ordinary master class, where students study the transmission of a given text and prepare an edition, there will be a special thematic master class this year, devoted to the linguistic use of manuscripts. A further outline of that option will be posted later this month.
