Summer School: The Arabic Manuscript: Codicology, Palaeography, and History

Tunis, National Library, July 10-15, 2017

 

The National Library of Tunisia and the University of Strasbourg, with the support of the Barakat

Foundation and Max van Berchem Foundation, organize a summer school on “The Arabic

Manuscript: Codicology, Palaeography and History,” in Tunis, National Library, July 10-15, 2017.

 

The history of intellectual production, books and libraries in Tunisia is a very rich and long-standing

one. The largest collection of premodern, mainly Arabic manuscripts is preserved in the National

Library in Tunis. It consists of ca. 25.000 volumes, in addition to thousands of other codices and

leaves in the Centre for the Study of Islamic Arts and Civilisation in Raqqada, Kairouan, and in a few

other places. This manuscript heritage covers a period of over a millennium (9 th – 19 th C.) and contains

important testimonies to the history of the region.

 

The summer school aims at offering a substantial training course on the Arabic manuscript with a

focus on this heritage. During six days, some of the most eminent specialists in the field will propose

theoretical and practical workshop sessions on the different aspects of the subject, especially

codicology and palaeography, with the objective of providing the participants with the knowledge

and methods necessary to analyse Arabic manuscripts in research, editing or cataloguing projects.

Moreover, the participants will have the opportunity to access one of the most important manuscript

collections in the Maghreb and the Arab world. They will also be able to visit several other

collections, museums and monuments in Tunis and Kairouan.

 

The speakers include Jean-Louis Estève (Ecole Supérieure Estienne des Arts et Industries Graphiques,

Paris) ; Alain George (University of Edinburgh) ; Asma Hilali (Institute of Ismaili Studies, London) ;

Mustapha Jaouhari (Université Bordeaux Montaigne) ; Francis Richard (Bibliothèque nationale de

France, Bibliothèque Universitaire des Langues et Civilisations, Paris) ; Rachida Smine (National

Library of Tunisia) ; Aurélia Stréri (independent book conservator, Paris).

 

The number of participants is limited. Preregistration is compulsory. Masters’ students, PhD

candidates, librarians and researchers working on Arabic manuscripts will be given priority. Please

send a short CV and cover letter to manuscritarabetunis@gmail.com before April 30, 2017.

 

The main languages of the summer school are French and Arabic.
