The Institute for Digital Humanities at the University of Göttingen, in collaboration with the Göttingen State and University Library, and with generous support from the Volkswagen Foundation, is pleased to announce its annual international digital palaeography summer school.
The summer school is intended as an intensive training programme for graduate students, in both traditional Latin palaeography and codicology, and in the latest digital technologies applicable in these disciplines. This year’s focus is on how these fields interface with digital editing and imaging science.
The programme will consist of sessions on the history of the script of Latin manuscript books in the medieval West, including transcription practice, in the mornings. Afternoon sessions will introduce students to digital methodologies and tools in fragmentology, codicology, editing, and cataloguing, as well as to TEI-XML and hyper- and multispectral imaging.
Successful applicants to the summer school will receive free accommodation for 13 nights (in individual self-catered rooms) and those who require them will also receive contributions towards their travel costs.
Applications are due by 31 March 2023.
No prior palaeographical or digital humanities experience is required.
The teaching language of the summer school is English.
