Franco-German Summer School organized by the BAM, CSMS, EPHE and PSL:
Manuscripts from Fragments to Books — from Identification to Interpretation
manuSciences'17 will focus on a multi-facetted investigation of manuscripts adding new chemical and physical analyses, imaging methods and techniques from computer sciences to classical philology, paleography, codicology, linguistics and history.
- To facilitate knowledge exchange between young scientists and experts in manuscript sciences
- To provide an interdisciplinary discussion forum and to develop cooperation among experts in manuscript studies
- To promote awareness of new technologies in manuscripts studies
Up to 40 (max.) young researchers, from master and Ph.D. students to researchers and university lecturers. Active participation is expected. The lectures and courses will be in English.
September 10-15, 2017.
