Free Places on Specialist Research Training on the History of the Book

The Universities of Keele, Manchester and Leicester, with funding from the
AHRC, have joined forces to host a research training course for PGR
students on the History of the Book. The week-long residential course, based at St
Deiniol's home to the Gladstone Library in Hawarden, North Wales, includes
key note lectures and workshop from leading scholars in the field and
includes work with the rare books and archives at Chetham's Library, the
John Rylands Library local record offices. Speakers include David Pearson
(University of London), Dr Peter McDonald (University of Oxford),
Professor Martin Stannard (University of Leicester), Professor Ann Hughes
(University of Keele), Professor Brian Maidment (University of Salford), Professor
David Adams and Professor Adrian Armstrong (University of Manchester). The
course will provide an intensive introduction to the theoretical and practical
issues in the new histories of the book, examining current scholarship in
the area (such as the work of Don McKenzie, Robert Darnton, Jerome McGann
and Roger Chartier), as well as showing students how to develop their
skills as users of a wide range of printed forms (broadsides, ballads, and
ephemera) as well as books, manuscripts, and electronic resources. The
course runs from 20th May to the 26th May 2006.

Students at the three partner institutions (Keele, Leicester, Manchester)
have first call on a limited number of places, but it is still necessary
for students to apply in the normal manner. Students at the partner
institutions will also be fully-funded: the package includes travel, accommodation,
evening meals and most lunches.

Two fully-funded places are also available to PGR students undertaking
research in this field in other UK Universities. First preference will be
given to AHRC funded students in the earliest stages of their research. If
you would like to know more about the course or would like to apply for a
place, please contact the Research Institute for the Humanities at Keele

The closing date for applications is 12th April 2006.
