COURSE DETAILS:

Manuscript and Print in Early Modern England

This is a fourth year reading and research seminar in which our weekly meetings will be both the occasion for discussion of assigned readings, analysis of documents and the catalyst for the production of a research paper. All members of the seminar will work closely with texts kept in Special Collections in the Bennett Library.  Research papers will be based on a text or part of a text in Special Collections and all students will be expected to gain a basic mastery of palaeography (Secretary hand).  Our subject is the changing material culture of manuscript and printed texts in early modern English society.

Location and time: The seminar will meet in Special Collections in the Bennett Library starting at 9.30 am.

Grading

  • Research Proposal 20%

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
