Palaeography Study Day With a Special Focus on
Saturday 17 January 2009
Full day Course
Music Building, Queen’s University Belfast
Dr Dorothea McEwan
This is an interdisciplinary one-day training course with German Palaeography
expert Dr Dorothea McEwan in two sessions. The morning session provides an introduction
to the subject of German palaeography. This includes an overview of the different
styles of writing found in a diverse range of handwritten documents, and practical
assistance will be given in the reading and transliteration of German handwriting.
The afternoon session will be much more interactive and tailored to the needs
of individual participants, who are encouraged to bring along their own samples.
A variety of sources from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries will be examined,
including catalogues, musical treatises and personal and official correspondence.
Postgraduate students, particularly PhD students in the field of Music, are encouraged
to apply. Priority will be given to those students who can demonstrate that this
course will facilitate their current research.
This course is primarily a reading course; therefore participants must have a
good knowledge of the German language. Please note that a maximum of 12 places
are available on this course. Places will be allocated on a first come first
served basis, providing that applicants can demonstrate that their research would
benefit from this course.
Participation in this event is free and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
