Workshop Description

The Summer Workshop in Oxford proposes a comprehensive and specialised programme in which a basic yet in-depth methodological introduction and research guidance will be provided to the fields of Hebrew Manuscript Studies mentioned above, as well as to history of the book and collections, art history, conservation and digital palaeography. The workshop will be divided into two parts, the first 6 days long and the second 4 days long. The first part will be devoted to methodological introduction as well as detailed examination of medieval manuscripts. The second part will be devoted to manuscripts in the age of print, i.e., in the early modern and modern periods. Applicants can attend both parts, or Part 1 only, but only alumni of our programme can apply to Part 2 only. The workshop is organised in collaboration with the Bodleian Library, which will allow access to original manuscripts in situ for the teaching sessions. Lecturers will include Professor Judith Olszowy-Schlanger, Professor Sarit Shalev-Eyni, Dr Agata Paluch and Dr César Merchán-Hamann. The full list of lecturers, subject to confirmation, will be released closer to the starting date.
