We are very happy to announce that manuSciences ’19 is now open for applications.
ManuSciences is a week-long intensive course in manuscript studies which combines history, philology, palaeography, and codicology with material sciences, digital humanities and computer science. Participants will have lectures from experts on topics such as the making and analysis of papyrus, parchment and paper, DNA and C14 analysis, and TEI for Palaeography and Codicology. They will also have hands-on sessions in which they will make their own inks and writing samples and then analyse these samples or other images with techniques and equipment including multispectral imaging, X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Microscopy, Raman Spectroscopy, and computational manuscript analysis.
The summer school will take place at the Côte d’Azur on 10-15 March, 2019 and is open to young researchers (loosely defined), from master and PhD students to researchers and university lecturers.
It is jointly organized by the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -Prüfung (BAM), Berlin, the Center for the Study of Manuscript Cultures (SFB 950), Hamburg and the École Pratique des Hautes Études – Université Paris Sciences et Lettres.
Applications are due by 15 November 2018
