Rare Book School offers five-day, intensive courses in several locations focused on the history of manuscript, print, and digital materials. Our courses this spring and summer will be held at the University of Virginia, Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Indiana University, Bloomington.
Among our more than thirty courses on the history of books and printing, we are pleased to offer courses of interest to those in the fields of medieval and Renaissance literature and history. The following is a sample of the breadth of classes offered:
- M-95 “The Medieval Manuscript in the Twenty-First Century,” taught by Will Noel and Dot Porter (University of Pennsylvania)
- M-70 “The Handwriting & Culture of Early Modern English Manuscripts,” taught by Heather Wolfe (Folger Shakespeare Library)
- M-20 “Seminar in Western Codicology,” taught by M. Michèle Mulchahey (Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies)
- M-90 “Advanced Seminar in Medieval Manuscript Studies,” taught by Barbara Shailor (Yale University)
To be considered in the first round of admissions decisions, course applications should be received no later than 20 February. Applications received after that date will be released for review on a rolling basis. Visit our website at for course details. 
A 2016 RBS student remarked, “I will never look at a book—any book—the same way again,” and so we hope you will join us at an RBS course this year and learn to see books in a new way as well!  
With kindest regards,
