Archival Seminar in Germany

Project Type:

I had the pleasure of leading a small group of North American graduate students on a two-week archival seminar in 2013 and 2014, a then long-running GHI program that has since been discontinued. The idea was to familiarize students with Germany’s archival landscape as well as to give them an opportunity to learn a type of German handwriting called Kurrentschrift. Clelia Caruso organized the first of these, and I organized the second.
