Cambridge Medieval Palaeography Study Group
Michaelmas 2014: November 4 and 18, and 2 December, 5:30-6:30 pm
The Cambridge Medieval Palaeography Workshop, in conjunction with the Network for the Study of Caroline Minuscule (NSCM) and the Centre for Material Texts, is expanding its programme to include a new discussion group series. The Medieval Palaeography Study Group provides an informal and friendly setting for students and non-students alike to discuss the palaeographical issues that arise when working with Western handwritten texts and scripts. Sessions will be divided between discussion of a pre-circulated chapter from Malcolm Parkes' 'Their Hands Before Our Eyes', and palaeographical issues raised by participants. There is no restriction on script or time period. The series will be launched by David Ganz, who will speak on the third volume of Bernhard Bischoff's catalogue of continental ninth-century manuscripts. To receive further information about the location of the sessions as well as the pre-circulated materials, join the mailing list: email Anna and Zack by the end of October 2014, with your name, affiliation, research topic and any issues you would particularly like to address.

Our Leeds IMC 2015 sessions will be announced in December 2014. Thank you to all those who submitted proposals.
If you'd like to contribute a series to our blog, please also get in touch. Alliterative weekly posts on palaeographical topics headed 'Ductus Day', 'Wynn Wednesday', or similar, will be particularly well received.
