The 2014 French Paleography workshop will take place at the Meeter Center for Calvin Studies in Grand Rapids, Michigan, from June 16 through June 27, 2014. The workshop is co-sponsored by the Meeter Center and the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference, and will be taught by Dr. Thomas Lambert, who is a highly-experienced paleographer and researcher, who has worked for many years on transcribing, editing, and publishing the minutes of the Genevan Consistory.
Selected participants will receive a $500 bursary to help defray travel and accommodation expenses. This workshop is directed primarily at graduate students and faculty. The chief pre-requisite is an ability to read modern French fluently. Please see the attached file for more information on the workshop and an application form.
