The Summer School in the Study of Historical Manuscripts is, in its concept and organization, the continuation of and complementary to the Summer School in the Study of Old Books that was held in Zadar in 2009. The main organizer of this School is Department of Library and Information Science of the University of Zadar, while the co-organizers are University of Zagreb, Faculty of Philosophy, History Department, Croatia, and Karl-Franzens-University of Graz, Vestigia – Manuscript Research Centre, Austria.
The main goal of the Summer School is to acquaint participants with the most recent developments and newly emerged concepts in the fields of: historical method and epistemology, research in historical manuscripts; bibliographic information organization and its relation to the archival context; conservation and preservation; and to provide practical introduction to historical collection management with contemporary approaches to digitization. The Summer School also aims to provide participants with insight into current research of Croatian, but also of other historical manuscripts in the region, and to raise their awareness of rich and technologically advanced research information sources, e.g., the CERL Portal for cross-searching catalogues of European manuscripts and early printed materials.
The Summer School in the Study of Historical Manuscripts targets Croatian and international PhD students studying the fields of: history of book and historical manuscripts, library and information sciences, archival studies, preservation and conservation studies, and cultural heritage studies. The form of the Summer School will allow students to actively participate in discussions after the lectures, choose a topic of interest among lectures presented during morning sessions, and elaborate it with the lecturer within afternoon Group Work sessions, which will run in parallel. Putting together the curriculum of their own interest, the students will thus additionally have the opportunity to prepare material for their essay. The essay will be marked by the professor in the chosen field. Students will receive 4 ECTS for attendance, and extra 4 ECTS for submitting the essay.
A PhD Forum open to PhD level students will be organized as part of the Summer School. All doctoral level students will be welcome to submit research proposals, and will be selected on the basis of the quality of the proposal and the potential to benefit of the participation at the forum.
Registration fee: doctoral students 100 €, others 200 €.
