The Institute for Digital Humanitities at the University of Göttingen, with generous support from the Volkswagen Foundation, is pleased to announce its inaugural international digital palaeography summer school. Applications are due by 30 April 2022.

The summer school is intended as an intensive training programme for graduate students, in both traditional Latin palaeography and codicology, and in the latest digital technologies applicable in these disciplines.

The programme will consist of sessions on the history of the script of Latin manuscript books in the medieval West, including transcription practice, in the mornings. Afternoon sessions will introduce students to digital methodologies and tools in fragmentology, codicology, editing, and cataloguing, as well as to TEI-XML, multispectral imaging and deep learning methods in palaeography.

Successful applicants to the summer school will receive free accommodation for 13 nights (in shared self-catered rooms) and those who require them will also receive contributions towards their travel costs.

Programme director: Dr. Anna Dorofeeva
