The American Comparative Literature Association's 2019 Annual Meeting, Georgetown University in Washington, DC, March 7th-10th, 2019.
This five-day winterschool at the Israel Institute for Advanced Studies brings together specialists of books in Hebrew and European languages from the late medieval and early modern periods. We will study textual practices through the lifecycle of the various physical objects we call books for convenience (though they may take other forms than the codex that we associate with books today). In particular we will examine how texts were composed and scribed, prepared for publication and distributed (in manuscript or in print), and read and annotated.
We are delighted to announce an additional Call for Applications for EHRI Fellowships. We offer additional weeks of access at a limited number of EHRI institutions (see below). The deadline for applications is the 31 August 2018. Applicants will be notified during the second half of September.
The Center for Holocaust Studies at the Institute for Contemporary History will be offering grants for research stays at the Center in Munich during 2019.
