This summer the Department of Humanities at the University of Ferrara (Italy) will again be offering an eight day summer school on textual criticism. Attendance is capped at 14 which means there should be plenty of personal attention.

The first week will be taught by Paulo Trovato whose book I have mentioned before on this blog. The second week includes a list of invited lecturers who will be covering specific textual traditions and their unique problems. This year I will be be teaching the slot on the New Testament with a special focus on the CBGM. There is also time for students to share their own research.

It’s a great opportunity for NT students to get a much broader view of textual criticism. The problems and solutions from other textual traditions can often be very illuminating. I am very much looking forward to hearing the other speakers present. And then, of course, there’s the gelato.

More details:
The course is aimed at both graduate and PhD students (max. 14 people) in diverse disciplines who would like to improve their knowledge in the field of Textual Criticism and discuss their research topics with colleagues and teachers. The basics and current theories, as well as the presentation of individual research subjects will be covered in the first 4 days. Further days will be spent deepening particular aspects of Textual Criticism, both in modem and classical languages, with particular attention to more recent developments, and discussing individual research. On Saturday and in some afternoons free guided visits and tours in medieval and Renaissance Ferrara are scheduled.  
Among the programme teachers you will find Joydeep Bagchee (Freie Universität Berlin), Dario Bullitta (Siena), Paolo Chiesa (Milano), Peter Gurry (Cambridge), Francesco Stella (Siena), Elisabetta Tonello (University e.Campus) and Paolo Trovato (Ferrara).
