For the fourth consecutive year, the Medici Archive Project will offer a 12-week Online Paleography Course. The course is designed to furnish participants with basic skills for reading historical manuscript materials from the late 15th- 17th-century Tuscany. This course also offers a general introduction to the nature of Italian archives. From personal letters to the inventories and wills, the digitized documents used to train the course’s participants in paleographic skills will also expose them to a wide range of document types useful for scholarly research.
Enrollment will be limited to 20 students. Priority will be given to graduate students, post-graduate scholars, and professionals with relevant scholarly interests. Basic knowledge of Italian is required. The course is taught in English.
The online course will be held from Monday, September 23 to Saturday, December 14, 2013.
The tuition for this course is US $ 500, payable by PayPal upon acceptance.
To apply, send: 1. A brief letter of introduction explaining the motivation for taking the course. 2. A curriculum vitae that details linguistic aptitude and (if applicable) archival experience.
All materials should be sent to Dr. Elena Brizio, firstname.lastname@example.org by September 16, 2013.
