Session 432: Approaches to Teaching Latin Palaeography: A Round Table Discussion

Abstract

Increasingly, students are entering graduate school without any knowledge of Latin. In turn, this renders the teaching of palaeography and codicology – critical skills for any graduate student in medieval studies – difficult. This round table will consider the different ways in which educators have addressed this problem – either successfully or unsuccessfully. The ultimate aim of this round table is to provide a springboard for discussion and solutions as we look to the future of the field.

Participants include Irene Ceccherini (Bodleian Library, University of Oxford), Julia Crick (King’s College London), Peter Stokes (Université Paris Sciences & Lettres), and Elaine Treharne (Stanford University)
