[BKARTS] Dunedin Rare Book School, January 2005



This message is being cross-posted to Exlibris, Book_Arts-L and SHARP-L. Please excuse any doubling up. And please feel free to distribute it to other lists you think might wish to know about this opportunity.


In conjunction with the Rare Book School, Charlottesville, VA, we are pleased to invite you to attend the inaugural Australasian Rare Book School in Dunedin, New Zealand from 17-21 January 2005. This is the second notice of the school, and all classes are confirmed, with a few spaces still available in each.


This year, the Dunedin school offers three classes:
• Medieval Illuminated Manuscripts, taught by Dr. Christopher de Hamel
• The English Book 1600-1800: Production, Analysis and Description, taught jointly by Dr. Keith Maslen and Dr. Brian McMullin
• Lithography: the Popularization of Printing in the 19th Century, taught by Prof. Michael Twyman


Along with useful information about travel and about the city of Dunedin, a fuller description of each class and suggested advance readings is available on the school web site: <www.otago.ac.nz/english/drbs>.

The school plans to offer summer sessions in a three-year cycle in Dunedin, Melbourne and Wellington, with each location drawing upon the strengths of local collections.

Thanks to the generosity of local benefactors, Dunedin Public Library hosts a collection of medieval manuscripts well-suited to teaching, while the Hocken Library houses a strong collection of lithographed posters, colour printing, and ephemera, and the University Library possesses collections in European theology, guidebooks and poetry. Drawing upon these resources from across the city, the Dunedin school offers world-class instruction in a relaxed summer setting.

Single rooms with shared bath and full meals are available on-campus at St Margaret’s College for NZ$60 (US$40; UK£22) per night. To learn more about the College, see their website at <www.smc.ac.nz/virtual.html>.

Application forms are available as PDF files on-line at the school website: <www.otago.ac.nz/english/drbs> or by contacting the address below.
