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 firstname.lastname@example.org before April 30, 2017.
The main languages of the summer school are French and Arabic.
