the school of manuscripts
The School of Manuscripts was a programme addressed at students of higher education institutions and PhD candidates interested in the culture and history of the Asian continent. During lectures and workshops participants had a chance to become acquainted with the writing traditions of South, Central and South-East Asia. We were discussing the history and development of writing, traditional literature, writing materials and ways of protecting, conserving and digitizing valuable books. The project also included workshops on reading the original texts in Sanskrit, Tibetan and Mongolian languages. We invited researchers from leading European institutions to cooperate with us on this programme.
Academics and employees of cultural institutions who would like to extend their knowledge about Asian manuscripts were also invited to take part in the project.
The workshops were held online on 8-10 December 2020 on Zoom.
