Medieval Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age (MMSDA): 2-6 May 2011

The Institute of English Studies (London) is pleased to announce the 
third year of this AHRC-funded course in collaboration with the 
University of Cambridge, the Warburg Institute, and King's College London.

The course is open to arts and humanities doctoral students registered 
at UK institutions. It involves five days of intensive training on the 
analysis, description and editing of medieval manuscripts in the digital 
age to be held jointly in Cambridge and London. Participants will 
receive a solid theoretical foundation and hands-on experience in 
cataloguing and editing manuscripts for both print and digital formats.

The first part of the course involves morning classes and then visits to 
libraries in Cambridge and London in the afternoons. Participants will 
view original manuscripts and gain practical experience in applying the 
morning's themes to concrete examples. In the second part we will 
address the cataloguing and description of manuscripts in a digital 
format with particular emphasis on the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI). 
These sessions will also combine theoretical principles and practical 
experience and include supervised work on computers.

The course is aimed principally at those writing dissertations which 
relate to medieval manuscripts, especially those on literature, art and 
history. There are no fees, but priority will be given to PhD students 
funded by the AHRC. Class sizes are limited to twenty and places are 
'first-come-first-served' so early registration is strongly recommended.
