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.

Traditions of Papermaking in the Islamic World

COURSE: Traditions of Papermaking in the Islamic World, The British Library, London, 23 – 27 March 2015.

The Islamic Manuscript Association, in cooperation with the British Library and the Thesaurus Islamicus Foundation, is pleased to announce an inaugural course and symposium on the materials and techniques of making Islamic manuscripts entitled Traditions of Papermaking in the Islamic World, which will be held at the British Library from 23 to 27 March 2015.

This intensive four-day course and one-day symposium is intended for conservators, codicologists, librarians, art historians, curators, and any other researchers working with papers produced in the Islamic world, particularly those appearing in Islamic manuscripts. The course will offer participants first-hand exposure to the materials and techniques of papermaking, allowing them to better understand and assess the characteristics of the papers with which they have been working.

The course will focus on traditional techniques practiced by contemporary hand papermakers in India, as well as practices suggested by qualities observed in papers of local production appearing in manuscripts of Arab, Persian, and Indian manufacture.

Daily practical sessions will address preparing fibre, forming sheets, pressing and drying newly formed sheets, and sizing and burnishing dried sheets. These sessions will be supplemented by lectures on historical and contemporary descriptions of papermaking in the Islamic world, mould and chapri construction, approaches to the analytical description of paper, and the challenges of chronological and regional characterisation.

The day after the course, participants are invited to attend the Symposium on Traditions of Papermaking in the Islamic World, which will comprise lectures on current research related to papers used in Islamic manuscripts as well as a papermaking demonstration. Please be advised that course participants do not need to register for the Symposium.

The course will be taught by Dr Cathleen A. Baker, conservation librarian at the University of Michigan Library and adjunct lecturer at the University of Michigan School of Information; Mr Timothy Barrett, director of the University of Iowa Center for the Book and associate professor at the University of Iowa School of Library and Information Sciences; Ms Evyn Kropf, librarian for Near Eastern and religious studies and curator of the Islamic manuscript collection at the University of Michigan Library; and Ms Katharina Siedler, papermaker and historian.

The course is limited to twelve persons for pedagogical and security reasons, and the one-day symposium is limited to 25 persons. All instruction will be in English. Please be advised that registration is conducted on a first-come, first-served basis; however, the Association reserves the right to reject course registrations if it deems an individual’s experience or reasons for registering to be unsuitable.
