W tym tygodniu Lisa Fagin Davis zabiera nas do Iowa. A w przyszłym – Nebraska. Szkoda, że o Europie ktoś tak nie pisze. Ale też byłoby to chyba nieogarnialne.

Manuscript Road Trip

As we turn south and head into Iowa, we leave the lake country behind and find ourselves in the plains of the Midwest, among the farms, big sky, and wide open spaces of the Heartland. It isn’t necessarily where most medievalists would expect to find medieval manuscripts, but if I’ve learned anything from my experiences searching for leaves and codices, it’s that they show up in unexpected places.

The 1938 de Ricci Census of Manuscripts in the United States and Canada lists ten manuscripts in only one public collection in Iowa (see Census I:717-724): the Davenport Public Library (the manuscript listed as belonging to the State University of Iowa is said by de Ricci to have been „recently mislaid”).  Blog map

The manuscripts in the Census listed as belonging to the Davenport Public Library had been bequeathed in 1931 by the estate of Charles August Ficke (1850-1931), the former Mayor of Davenport, successful financier…

Na portalu Zdobywamy granty na badania zamieszczono bardzo użyteczną, moim zdaniem, infografikę, która w przejrzysty sposób pokazuje kto, gdzie i jak może się starać o granty i w jakich konkursach może startować. Infografika dotyczy przede wszystkim młodych badaczy, od studentów po doktorów.

APPLICATION

Academic Requirements

Early-Stage Researchers must be in the first 4 years of their research careers and not yet have a doctoral degree. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is envisaged.

Experienced Researchers must be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience. At the time of recruitment by the host organisation an experienced researcher must also have less than 5 years of full-time equivalent research experience.

It should be noted that an individual researcher may not be recruited first as an ESR and subsequently as an ER in the same project.

Marie Curie ITN mobility requirement

Researchers can be of any nationality. They are required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up their appointment. One general rule applies to the appointment of researchers:

At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.

Short stays such as holidays and/or compulsory national service are not taken into account.

Application process

Please note that applications from any qualified applicants, regardless of gender, ethnicity or country of origin are welcome if they meet the eligibility requirements.

Applicants should send their applications directly to the institution hosting the desired fellowship. Applications for more than one post are welcome – however, multiple applications should be indicated via the obligatory DiXiT application form (which has to be submitted separately from the application documents send to the hosting institution).

Application deadline

The deadline for applications is the 10th December 2013.
Please note that the four remaining ER fellowships will start at a later date and the possibility of application will be announced accordingly.

Polecam kolejny wpis z cyklu rękopiśmiennych podróży po USA. Tym razem Lisa Fagin Davis zabiera nas do Minnesoty.

Manuscript Road Trip

Minnesota  is one of the most beautiful regions of the United States, its extensive woods dotted with thousands of glacial lakes. There aren’t quite as many manuscripts as there are lakes, of course, but there are more than enough to warrant a visit. We’ll start in Minneapolis, at the University of Minnesota.

Blog mapThe department of Special Collections at UMN holds nineteen codices and sixty-three leaves, many of which have been digitized:

Ege’s Fifty Leaves portfolio: http://umedia.lib.umn.edu/taxonomy/term/735 (some of these should look familiar to you by now!)

Singles leaves: http://umedia.lib.umn.edu/taxonomy/term/736 (some of these happen to be Ege leaves…can you spot them?)

At last count, the James Ford Bell Library, also at the University of Minnesota, was home to 27 codices, 186 documents, and nine maps/atlases. The Bell Library collects works having to do with „international trade in the pre-modern era”; hence, many of the pre-1600 manuscripts are cartographic or documentary. Pre-1600 manuscripts can…

Bardzo gorąco polecam szalenie ciekawy wywiad, który przeprowadził Maciej Chojnowski z Małgorzatą Rychlik, jedną z twórczyń i osób odpowiedzialnych za poznańskie Repozytorium AMUR.

W rozmowie poruszone są kwestie tworzenia repozytoriów, wskazówki dla osób, które chciałyby zając się tym w przyszłości, rola repozytoriów i wolnej nauki w upowszechnianiu badań i promocji naukowców z macierzystej uczelni.

Wywiad Jesteśmy u progu intensywnych zmian ukazał się na portalu Wolna Nauka i można się z nim zapoznać :: tutaj ::

Jutro i pojutrze (14-15 listopada 2013) w Książnicy Pomorskiej w Szczecinie odbędzie się konferencja Zbiory specjalne w bibliotekach polskich. Problematyka badawcza i organizacyjna.

Jako że wiele referatów zahacza o mediewistykę i badania związane z inkunabułami i starymi drukami, polecam uwadze. Mam nadzieję, że ukaże się też tom pokonferencyjny.

Kolejna część Manuscript Road Trip Lisy Fagin Davis. Tym razem Wisconsin, The American Geographical Society Library, mapy, godzinki, antyfonarze. Polecam.

Manuscript Road Trip

The state of Wisconsin holds several surprises for medieval manuscript aficionados, the first of which is Marquette University, a Jesuit college in Milwaukee. The Rare Book Library is home to a set of twelve handwritten antiphonals produced in 1562 for the Spanish abbey of the Order of San Jerónimo in Alcala la Real in the Archdiocese of Granada.

The choirbooks were apparently saved from a rioting mob near a monastery in Burgos Las Huelgas in 1931, after which they were acquired by Milwaukee native Colonel Howard M. Greene who gave them to Marquette in 1942. The antiphonals are typically Spanish in style, displaying fine penwork initials with border elements reminiscent of Islamic tiling, the result of the mingling of Christian and Muslim influences on the Iberian peninsula.

The Haggerty Museum at Marquette owns several leaves and manuscripts, including a lovely Book of Hours illustrated with a rare image of St. Martha taming the ferocious…
