The University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, in cooperation with the Abbey of Montecassino, is pleased to announce the organisation of its fourth Summer School for the benefit of master and PhD students, scholars, librarians and other experts or interested persons working with medieval manuscripts and early printed books.
The School aims to provide an updated vision of research trends and achievements in the fields of Greek and Latin manuscript research, with a particular focus on the manuscripts preserved in Montecassino. The rich programme includes a guided tour to the Abbey of Montecassino, renowned for its abundance of medieval manuscript treasures. The School will also offer a chance for participants to discuss their own research projects with the guest speakers and lecturers, who are internationally recognized experts in textual scholarship and manuscript studies.
The School will take place in Cassino (Frosinone, Italy). Each session at the University of Cassino will be followed by a workshop held at the Archive of Montecassino, where a selection of manuscripts related to the session’s topic will be presented and analysed. Participants will be invited to actively contribute to the presentation. The lectures will be given in English and Italian.
The number of participants is limited to 30. The course will only be held if a minimum of fifteen students register for participation.
Pre-registration is free. Please complete the enclosed form and send it by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org before March 31, 2018. All candidates must submit a brief curriculum (education, work or research experiences, and
a list of publications if available) and are expected to possess a basic
knowledge of Latin, Latin Paleography and Codicology.
If the pre-registrations exceed the number of 30, the Organising Committee will make a selection based on the candidates’ academic qualifications and research excellence (Master, PhD, publications, participation to research projects etc.). In case of equal merit, preference will be given to the youngest candidate.
By April 30, 2018, all the accepted candidates will receive a confirmation notice by e-mail, along with further information to complete the registration process.
The registration fee amounts to € 350, including admission to all of the conference’s sessions and visits, course materials, transportation to the Abbey of Montecassino, two rich welcome and good-bye toasts (brindisi), at the beginning of the School on Monday 25th June and at its end on Thursday 28th June, 2018. The fee is to be paid after the confirmation of acceptance has been received.
All participants will be issued a certificate of participation.
