This summer the Leiden Department of Middle East Studies is partnering with the University Library to organize another summer school in Philology and Manuscripts from the Muslim World from August 21 to September 1.
Lecturers from Leiden University and guest lecturers cover topics from the practicalities of working with and reading manuscripts, the materiality and codicology of manuscripts to how ownership and marginal notes can be used to reconstruct the social life of manuscripts using samples in Turkish, Persian, Ethiopic, Arabic and Indonesian languages. Participants work afternoons on an individual project using samples from the Oriental manuscripts collection.
There are two scholarships covering the tuition costs for participants not from Leiden University.
The deadline for applications is June 16.
