With apologies for cross-posting, please see below for the 'Medieval
Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age' course which is open to UK-based
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.
