Ecole d’été – Textual Scholarship from Antiquity to the Renaissance (LECTIO)

KU Leuven, 2-6 July 2012
LECTIO, the Leuven Centre for the Study of the Transmission of Texts and Ideas in Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, organizes its first Summer School. It takes place at KU Leuven, situated at the centre of the lively historical town of Leuven.
For five days, participants in the Summer School will immerse themselves in the world of ancient, medieval and renaissance scholars, and their Latin, Greek and vernacular texts. These authors and texts will be discussed from different perspectives and disciplines in both lectures and more practical sessions. For some sessions a (short) reading list will be provided. The Summer School also offers an occasion for participants to present and discuss their own research.
The Summer School is particularly intended for (research) master students and PhD students. Other participants are welcome to attend. The number of participants is limited to 20.
