From 25 to 30 September 2017, the Hiob Ludolf Centre for Ethiopian Studies organizes its Second Summer School in Ethiopian and Eritrean Manuscript Studies.
The school aims at training graduate students and junior scholars in Ethiopian and Eritrean manuscript studies. Lectures and seminars in topics ranging from History to Philology to Codicology to Cataloguing shall cover the most central aspects of research and help in developing skills necessary for theoretical and practical tasks in the study of manuscripts. Digital technologies that have become indispensable in the past years shall be showcased, and practical excercises offered.
The school is open to students and scholars of all disciplines, but some degree of knowledge of Christian Orient as well as experience of study and/or research dealing with one of the oriental traditions is expected. Knowledge of Ethiopian languages is not a necessary prerequisite.
The participation in this Summer School is subject to registration. 20 participants shall be selected from all qualified applications that will reach us before the deadline on 31 May 2017.
Thanks to the generous funding of the Volkswagen Stiftung, and the involvement of several Hamburg-based projects, a limited number of tuition grants will be available towards the coverage of travel and accommodation costs to students of all nationalities.
