Day workshop on cursive handwriting. Cambridge 20 April 2007

The second meeting of the Séminaire permanent “Écritures cursives” will be held on Friday 20 April at Trinity College Cambridge, and will focus upon techincal and material aspects of cursive handwriting.

The Séminaire permanent “Écritures cursives” is an open, informal workshop that focuses upon the various aspects of cursivity and its role in the evolution of handwriting in the Latin West. Its meetings comprise short presentations as a starting-point for informal discussion. Presentations are usually given in the speaker’s first language, but the discussion is conducted as far as possible in the language of the host venue. The first meeting was hosted by Marc Smith at the École nationale des chartes, Paris, on 12 May 2006, when the focus was upon the various definitions of cursive handwriting, and the different ways in which the term ‘cursive’ has been applied.
