As in previous years, the Max-Planck-Institut für europäische Rechtsgeschichte invites doctoral students and young researchers to participate in the seminar “Studientage”. This year the focus will be on “The sources of the central institutions of the Roman Church in the Early Modern and Contemporary eras. Research tools for History and History of Law”. The seminar will take place in Frankfurt am Main from 28th to 30th September 2011.
The purpose of the Workshop is to offer participants basic tools to begin researching in the archives of the Roman Curia dicasteries and of other Roman ecclesiastical institutions as well as to provide elements for a critical
interpretation of the sources and their contextualization through the most current literature.
Three work sessions will be held: the first one will be on the history of the Roman Curia from the Middle Ages to the present; the second one will present the main Roman archives and their means of description and research; the third one will cover the methodology of archival investigation, with special attention to historical and legal-historical issues, and the description of specific competences and tools that are essential for the purposes of archival work.
Applications must be submitted to Dr. Benedetta Albani
(firstname.lastname@example.org) by 15th June and must include, together with the application form duly completed, a short description of the candidates’research activity (max. 1000 characters, spaces excluded) and an updated CV. The selection of candidates will be notified to the interested parties by 30th June 2011.
The Max-Planck Institute will cover accommodation expenses, but participants must provide for their travel expenses. In exceptional cases it may be possible to obtain full coverage of all expenses.
