The World of Manuscripts International Conference

10th-13th October 2013.

Deadline for registration (required) 15th September, 2013

The aim of this conference is to commemorate Árni Magnússon himself, showcase his manuscripts, and underline the national and international significance of his endowment. Beyond this, the intention of the conference organisers is to bring Scandinavian manuscript scholars together with their counterparts in non-Scandinavian countries. The hope is that the exchange of ideas and knowledge will be particularly fruitful through being conducted from a broader, comparative international framework. The structure of the individual sessions is designed to stimulate exchange to this end: in each session, one Scandinavian scholar will be paired with one non-Scandinavian specialist. Sessions headings: Materiality, Letters, Languages, Notes/Neumes, Texts, Colours, Collectors, Highlights from the Árni Magnússon collection of manuscripts.

Preliminary Programme

Contacts: Rósa Sveinsdóttir and Margrét Eggertsdóttir.
