They will also discuss philology, literacy and orality, and the transmission of knowledge in the Islamic manuscript culture, presenting case studies from various parts of the Muslim world. Participants can apply this training and, under the supervision of experts, practice their skills in producing a sample critical edition of a manuscript of their choice.
