Eleventh International Summer School
6th-14nd August 2014
University of Copenhagen
An 8-day intensive course in medieval and early-modern Scandinavian manuscript studies.
The course, which will comprise both lectures and practical sessions, is intended chiefly for graduate students (MA/PhD-level) but may also be of interest to more established scholars hoping to improve their manuscript reading and editorial skills. A sound background in Old Norse-Icelandic and/or Old Danish is essential. Familiarity with one or more of the modern Scandinavian languages, while a distinct advantage, is not required, as all teaching will be in English.
As in previous years there will be both a basic group, focusing on palaeography, codicology, manuscript description and transcription, and an advanced group, focusing on editorial technique and the theory and practice of textual criticism; to qualify for the latter one must normally have successfully completed the former.
Participation in the summer school entitles one to 7.5 ECTS points.
There are no tuition fees as such, but participants are expected to cover their own travel costs and other expenses and pay a small registration fee.
The Arnamagnæan summer school is now open for registration.
