ANZAMEMS is pleased to announce a Postgraduate Advanced Training Seminar on the theme
Editing Medieval and Early Modern Texts: Principles and Practice

University of Otago
7–8 February 2011

The editing of texts from the medieval and early modern periods is a complex and demanding task. Surprisingly there are very few resources available that provide guidance as to how to describe, transcribe and fully edit materials from these periods. This workshop will bring together leading experts in text editing in order to share their skills and experience with postgraduate students and early career researchers. The expert instructors are:

Prof Eva Schlotheuber, University of M√ľnster: Medieval and German texts
Prof Michael Hunter, Birkbeck College, London: Early Modern texts
Dr Greg Waite, University of Otago: Old and Middle English texts

The workshop will take place after the biennial ANZAMEMS conference to be held at the University of Otago from 2–5 February 2011.

Bursaries are available to suitably qualified applicants from Australasia (see application form).

Inquiries should be forwarded to the workshop convenor: Prof Peter Anstey, University of Otago
