Further thoughts on the pedagogy of palaeography and codicology
In order to further discussion, the format of this colloquium will vary from the 2016 format. Morning and afternoon sessions will each consist of two panels running concurrently on particular topics (1½ hours) followed by a plenary session (1 hour) in which the members of the two panels will be asked to report and comment on the panel session to all of the delegates, and facilitate further discussion. The hope is that by dividing the delegates into smaller groups more focused conversations will be generated.
Each panel will have four members. Panel members will each offer 10–15 minute presentations on the topic in question before the discussion is opened up to the delegates who have chosen to attend a particular panel. One of the panel members will act as a chair of the session, and will co-ordinate their panel’s contribution to the plenary session.
The panels will be:
Continental and Anglophone approaches to teaching palaeography and codicology
Pedagogical approaches to musical manuscripts
Approaches to teaching art history and manuscript studies
Taking palaeography further: using manuscripts to engage in outreach with schools and and the general public.
Closing remarks will be given by Dr Teresa Webber, Reader in Palaeography, University of Cambridge.
