Teaching the Codex: Pedagogical Approaches to Palaeography and Codicology

Saturday, February 6, 2016 (All day)
Merton College, Oxford
Registration is closed, as we have no space in accommodate anyone else in the lecture theatre
 
Palaeography and codicology encompass skill sets which are applicable to a broad range of disciplines across the Humanities. Most students encounter them for the first time at graduate level, in spite of their wide-reaching implications for our understanding and interpretation of the texts and documents with which we work. The approaches taken to teaching and using these skills vary according to the subject area, and interdisciplinary collaboration is often informal.
 
This colloquium brings together academics from a range of disciplines who are experienced in teaching palaeography and codicology in order to enable a series of discussions on diverse pedagogical approaches. We anticipate that the colloquium will facilitate dialogues around traditional and innovative strategies for learning which will lead to the sharing of resources between disciplines.
 
Our speakers are Prof. Henrike Lähnemann, Prof. Daniel Wakelin, Prof. Tobias Reinhardt, N.G. Wilson, Dr Julia Walworth, Dr Orietta Da Rold, Dr Helen Swift, Dr Peter Stokes, Prof. Niels Gaul, and Dr Teresa Webber. Our panel chairs are Prof. David d’Avray, Prof. Richard Sharpe, Prof. Julia Crick, Dr Stephen Heyworth, and Dr Martin Kauffmann.
