Paleography & the Archives, April 18, 9:15am - 5pm

April 9, 2014

On Friday, April 18, from 9:15 am - 5 pm, the Graduate Field Committee in Medieval & Early Modern Studies will host an all-day seminar and practicum, "Paleography & the Archives." Professors Sabrina Baron, Holly Brewer, Alejandro Cañeque (all from the History Department), and Professor Ralph Bauer (from English) will present panels on Spanish and British Atlantic World topics and then guide participants through hands-on paleography practice.

The event will take place in the Michelle Smith Collaboratory. All interested faculty and grad students are invited. This promises to be a terrific crash course (or refresher) in archival research. Moreover, for graduate students especially, this is a great opportunity to work closely with faculty outside of your home departments.

Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided. Please R.S.V.P. to Chris Maffuccio at
