2014 Byzantine Greek Summer School
Dumbarton Oaks will offer an intensive four-week course in medieval Greek and paleography in the summer of 2014. The course will be given by Alice-Mary Talbot (Dumbarton Oaks, emerita) and Stratis Papaoiannou (Brown University). Approximately ten places will be available, with priority given to students without ready access to similar courses at local or regional institutions.
Students’ time will be divided between the translation of sample Byzantine texts, with each week devoted to a different genre (e.g., historiography, hagiography, poetry and epistolography); sessions on paleography; and individual tutorials. Students will also have the opportunity to study inscribed objects and original manuscripts in the Byzantine Collection, and view facsimiles of manuscripts in the Dumbarton Oaks Rare Books Collection.
