KITAB LUCIS masterclasses

In April and May, LUCIS spring fellow Sarah Savant will offer several masterclasses that give students the opportunity for a hands-on experience with digital humanities methods for studying medieval texts. The masterclasses will be based on a research project led by Sarah Savant, which studies text reuse across the Arabic and Persian textual traditions. Participating students will engage with exciting new techniques to study medieval texts, giving them the chance to gain new insights for their own research or academic development.  The masterclasses will be held on April 11, 21 and 28; and May 3 and 12. Third year BA students, MA students and PhD students are encouraged to register at lucis@hum.leidenuniv.nl.

The masterclasses will be based on nearly two years of research and development work on KITAB, a research project led by Sarah Savant, which studies text reuse across the Arabic and Persian textual traditions. Participating students will engage with exciting new techniques to study medieval texts, as well as to practice their Arabic.
