Call for Applications: Summer School in Early Modern Japanese Palaeography (Cambridge University, 2-14 August 2021)

Summer School in Early Modern Japanese Palaeography
2-14 August 2021.

Upon careful thinking and wide consultation with all the parties involved, including the senior officers of Emmanuel College, we have decided to conduct the 2021 programme virtually.

The 2021 summer school will focus on early modern sources that are humorous and playful. Last year we explored how early modern popular popular texts dealt with pandemics and we realised that humour played a huge part. After a year that has been trying for us all, we thought that a focus on humour, wit, laughter, and playfulness will be a good ki no kusuri 気の薬!

For information on the programming for beginners and intermediate/advanced students of kuzushiji and hentaigana, see details on the website:

Deadline to apply is January 31, 2021.
