Methodology / Skills Sessions

Running alongside the seminars on Renaissance Culture and Society are classes which emphasise the development of research, bibliographical, and palaeographical skills, with the option of specialising in English or Italian Palaeography. These sessions, mandatory for Centre students, are also open to interested students from departments such as English, History, Classics, Modern Languages and Art History. Although they are not assessed, informal tests and assignments are part of the skills training. A Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to students who attend 80%+ of the palaeography class, and who pass the short test set at the end of the spring term. References pertaining to your MA degree work may refer to your performance on any of these assignments as shown by your file.

As well as Palaeography, a selection of other skills sessions will be timetabled for all students, during term 2 at Warwick. Do check this website and tabula for further details. A draft outline of the programme is below, with day/time looking to be Wednesdays, 14:00-15:30 in H2.46 unless otherwise noted.
