This year a summer school in Paris prepares future librarians, custodians and medieval scholars to carry out comparative and quantitative studies of incunables and medieval manuscripts. The school intends to introduce candidates to what may be termed quantitative codicology.

The summer school is organised by le Laboratoire de Médiévistique occidentale de Paris, l’Institut de Recherche et d’Histoire des Textes, l’École nationale des chartes et le laboratoire Dynamiques patrimoniales et culturelles.

The summer school is primarily intended for researchers in training (master’s, doctoral and post-doctoral students). Grants, intended to reimburse transport and accommodation costs, may be allocated up to a ceiling, which will be determined during the examination of the applications, depending on the number and geographic origin of the candidates selected. Based on applications up to 25 researcher can participate.

Deadline for applications: 28.03.2020

Management:

Christine Bénévent, Emilie Cottereau-Gabillet, Catherine Rideau-Kikuchi and Dominique Stutzmann.
Scientific and educational coordination: Émilie Cottereau-Gabillet and Octave Julien
