Online Palaeography Courses – Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies, Durham University

After a highly successful launch, the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies (IMEMS) at Durham University is happy to announce its new edition of their online Palaeography courses:

  • Latin European Medieval Palaeography, run by Dr Manuel Muñoz García.
  • Early Modern English Palaeography (1500-1700), run by Dr Arnold Hunt. 

You can find full details and an application form on their website:

Our courses provide quality skills training to facilitate working with manuscripts, whether at graduate level or for those working in a professional environment as a librarian, archivist, etc. Feedback from former students highlights the quality and breadth of the content, the flexibility of the course and the opportunity to engage with a great range of optional videos.

The courses will run July 8th-19th. These are online, full-time courses that consist of asynchronous content and daily live sessions, which are duplicated to allow students from multiple time zones to join. Students will receive feedback on a portfolio of transcriptions after the course, as well as continued access to the asynchronous material for two months.

There are limited spaces (24 students per course) and applications are now open. The final deadline for applications is June 14th, and places will be offered to successful candidates on a first-come, first-served basis.
