Calling all graduate students with an interest in western European medieval and Renaissance manuscripts!  Art historians, classicists, historians, musicologists, scholars in literature or religious studies!  This summer the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies is once again offering a free six-week, non-credit introduction to manuscript skills.  The course offers students a chance to start learning about codicology, paleography, and digital humanities as applied to manuscript studies, and a chance to practice and work with manuscripts at the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts, led by Will Noel, Dot Porter, and Amey Hutchins.  The class will meet Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 10 am to noon, May 24-June 29 (Summer Session I).
