Twelfth International Summer School

30th July - 6th August 2015
University of Iceland

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.
