Course on Arabic Codicology

COURSE –  Arabic Codicology: The Islamic Handwritten Tradition and its Reception in El Escorial Collection, XXVIII Summer Courses 2015, Complutense University of Madrid, 20 – 24 July 2015.

The course is directed by Dr. Nuria Martínez-de-Castilla-Muñoz, lecturer at the Complutense University of Madrid, and taught by leading international scholars in the field, among whom we are pleased to introduce Professor François Déroche (EPHE, Paris, France) and Professor Adam Gacek (McGill, Montréal, Canada), who will join again to cooperate in such a programme.

The course Arabic codicology: The Islamic Handwritten Tradition and its Reception in El Escorial Collection aims at providing the students with the basic codicological knowledge and the research procedures they will need when studying and analyzing Arabic manuscripts, as well as at familiarizing them with the libraries of the Arabic Islamic world in Medieval and Modern times, more especially that which belonged to the Moroccan sultan Muley Zaydân. To achieve that, the design of the course programme allows the students to apply the knowledge they acquire with the manuscripts.

The Royal Library of the El Escorial monastery houses the most important collection of Arabic manuscripts in Spain, one of the most interesting ones in Europe. Its proximity to the venue for the summer courses makes this particularly valuable as far as the aims of this course are concerned since practical training will take place there, owing to the collaboration which has been set up with the library. Actual manuscripts of the collection will be examined.

The course will be taught by specialists of Arabic manuscripts, among them two of the foremost experts in this field, François Déroche and Adam Gacek, who who will meet again to deliver a course of this kind. The course provides a global overview of the field, thus proving a groundbreaking programme in the frame of Arabic codicological studies, mainly due to its practical approach and to the quality and diversity of the examples which will be examined during the course. It intends to answer to the growing interest among scholars and professionals, as well as researchers, university students and bibliophiles with the international stance required by Arabic codicological studies.

The use of original manuscripts during the hands on sessions implies that the number of students cannot exceed 16 persons. For this reason, a motivation letter stating the interest in the course and a short CV are required; they will be taken into account during the selection process. The course will be given in English in its entirety. Students have thus to be proficient in this language in order to successfully attend the course.

Participating students will be taught at the Biblioteca Dominicana di Santa Maria Novella and the Archivio di Stato in Florence. Two visits to private archives are also planned. In addition, participants are encouraged to spend their mornings at the MAP office at the Archivio di Stato in Florence in order to work on their projects alongside current MAP fellows and scholars.

The seminar will run for two weeks, composed of twelve three-hour lessons (on average), and is limited to fifteen scholars (so that each participant will receive personal guidance).

Latin & Palaeography Summer School 2015

COURSE: The 38th Keele Latin and Palaeography Summer School 2015, Keele, Staffordshire (UK), Saturday 25th – Thursday 30th July. Director of Studies: Nigel Tringham.

This summer school at Keele University (now in its 38th year) is for those wishing to acquire or improve their skills in reading and transcribing medieval and early modern documents in both Latin and English. Taken mostly from English archives (both national and local), the documents are chiefly those which are used by historians rather than literary texts.

If you need an introduction to medieval Latin or palaeography (the study of medieval and early modern handwriting), or wish to enhance the knowledge that you already have and want to meet others with the same interests, then the Keele school is designed for you, and one of its main benefits is that students are able to build up their knowledge and confidence during the week.

The school is taught in several small groups, but these are not in sessions at which students just listen to tutors and make notes. Rather, the emphasis is very much on learning the skills in reading and transcribing documents, and so involves a lot of active participation.

The approach is serious but friendly and attracts a wide range of people from both the UK and abroad: national, local, and family historians, along with archive students and postgraduate researchers. Many come back year after year, taking the opportunity to seek advice from tutors and fellow students on their own research interests and problems.

The tutors all have considerable experience in teaching adult groups, and have their own expertise in a wide range of topics, beyond palaeography. They include senior archivists, university lecturers, and local history tutors.

The school takes place at the University’s attractive campus in North Staffordshire, with accommodation in comfortable single bedrooms. The school is built around a series of small seminar groups of up to 10 or so students, each led by an expert tutor. Students attend ONE group only throughout the week.

There are two Introductory Courses: one for those with no or very little knowledge of Latin as a language (1) and the other for those who want to learn how to read and transcribe a range of medieval Latin documents (2). For those already with a good knowledge of Latin grammar and a reasonable level of palaeographical expertise, there is a choice from three Subject Courses.

École d’été sur ‘Les incunables’

COURSE – Les incunables: de l’invention de Gutenberg à la révolution numérique,  École d’été, Médiathèque d’Orléans, 1 place Gambetta, Orléans, France, 7 – 11 juillet 2015.

Les premières éditions imprimées parues avant 1501, connues sous le nom d’incunables, ont suscité depuis trois siècles l’intérêt des bibliophiles, des chercheurs, des responsables de bibliothèques. La production de ce premier demi-siècle est aujourd’hui mieux connue grâce à des entreprises bibliographiques nationales et internationales. Quelque 30.000 éditions incunables ont été recensées, ce qui représente environ quinze millions d’exemplaires mis en circulation en une cinquantaine d’années.

Cette école d’été vise à sensibiliser le public aux problématiques de la description, du catalogage, de l’informatisation et de la numérisation des incunables. Elle entend montrer l’intérêt de leur étude scientifique, qui peut passer par l’analyse de leurs conditions de production et de leur contenu, mais aussi par la reconstitution de leur itinéraire jusqu’à nous, à travers l’étude de leurs reliures et marques de provenance.

L’informatisation des Catalogues Régionaux des Incunables du Centre-Ouest (CRIICO) est réalisée au CESR, à l’initiative et avec le soutien du Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, dans le cadre de l’Equipex Biblissima.
