The Minnesota Manuscript Research Laboratory will hold its 8th annual workshop, to give participants a practical, hands-on introduction to the study of manuscripts, at an internationally acclaimed research institute, the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library at St. John's University, Collegeville, MN.
The workshop will be held Sunday, June 3 through Friday, June 8, 2012 and will orient students to the disciplines of paleography and codicology, help them evaluate scholarly arguments pertaining to manuscripts presented in books and journals, and enable them decide if they wish to pursue further study of textual disciplines. Students will have the opportunity to select a “focus manuscript” to work on, which may be in either Latin or a vernacular language. Students will be housed in a dormitory on the Saint John’s campus and take meals in the campus refectory. The workshop is open to undergraduate and graduate students from any institution as well as to faculty, independent scholars and other individuals interested in manuscript studies and having a background in classics, medieval studies or library studies.
