Mellon Summer Institute in Spanish Paleography
The final Mellon Summer Institute in Spanish Paleography will be hosted by the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin from June 11-29, 2007 and will be taught by Professor Carla Rahn Phillips of the University of Minnesota.
Participants will learn to transcribe Spanish documentary and book scripts found in primary sources from Spain and the Americas in the late medieval and early modern periods (1450-1700). Manuscripts from the Ransom Center collections and the Benson Latin American Collection will be used to supplement and enrich course content. Attention will also be given to research tools for using the archives of other manuscript repositories.
Each of the fifteen selected participants will receive a stipend of $1,890.
The Institute is part of a four-year initiative for vernacular paleography supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and headquartered at the Newberry Library Center for Renaissance Studies.
