Thursday 15th June (English sources, led by Dr. Ceri Law)
Friday 16th June (French sources, led by Dr. Tom Hamilton)

These sessions are open to anybody working on early modern manuscript sources, and we are particularly interested in involving beginners in early modern palaoegraphy, especially anyone starting Part II or MPhil dissertation research over the summer.

Please let Ceri and Tom know if you plan to attend ( and  Participants are invited to send examples of sources for the group to discuss, or equally they are welcome to send a brief description of the type of sources they will be working on so that we can prepare appropriate materials. Don’t hesitate to get in touch too if you’re working on sources in different languages and need practice – this will help the workshop organisers (Irene Galandra-Cooper, Tom Hamilton, Stefan Hanss, Ceri Law) plan future sessions.
