Center for Medieval Studies

Minnesota Manuscript Research Laboratory

The MMRL is a CMS project designed to provide guidance on the study of manuscripts. The Laboratory is intended to provide practical guidance and training in the areas of text studies, text editing, palaeography and codicology.

The workshop is open to undergraduate and graduate students from any institution as well as to faculty, independent scholars and other individuals interested in manuscript studies and having a background in classics, medieval studies, or library studies.

The workshop fee is $400.00. Funds are available for University of Minnesota graduate students officially registered for the Medieval Studies minor. Other students are encouraged to inquire about the availability of funds from their own academic departments. Housing and meals are not offered through the workshop this year, but if needed, please inquire for recommendations.


The 2014 Manuscript Workshop will be held June 1-6, 2014 at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
