Archival Seminar


Archival Summer Seminar in Germany

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 format that is currently on hiatus. The idea was to familiarize them with a bit of the archival landscape there as well 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.
