Colloque sur les manuscrits irlandais de Trinity College Dublin (17-18 mai 2018)

Les 17-18 mai 2018 aura lieu à Trinity College Dublin un colloque sur la collection des manuscrits irlandais dans cette bibliothèque.

The Irish manuscripts in the library of Trinity College Dublin

This event is being organised to celebrate the centenary of the establishment of what is now the TCD Department of Irish and Celtic Languages as an academic unit independent of the School of Divinity in 1918. The Irish manuscripts in the Library’s collection cover over a thousand years of Irish literature and learning, and the staff of the Irish Department, among others, are committed to the task of investigating this priceless scholarly resource with a view to elucidating its contents and bringing them to a wider public. As part of that endeavour, some speakers at this conference will focus on individual manuscripts of their choice, ranging in date from the ninth to the sixteenth centuries, while others will seek to outline how the collection came to be, and where it goes from now. Digital images will be used to illustrate the talks and some of the manuscripts featuring in the talks will be on exhibition in the Old Library for all to see.

Journée d’étude « Les bibliothèques patrimoniales en Belgique, 500 ans d’histoire », le 17 avril 2018

Le 17 avril 2018 aura lieu à la Bibliothèque royale de Belgique la journée d’étude « Les bibliothèques patrimoniales en Belgique, 500 ans d’histoire ».

En cette année académique 2017-2018, l’Université de Liège et l’Université de Gand commémorent chacune le bicentenaire de leur fondation. Ce n’est cependant pas leur seul point commun : ces deux institutions abritent en effet les pôles patrimoniaux les plus significatifs du Nord et du Sud du pays. L’occasion était belle de prendre appui sur ces deux dépôts (universitaires) d’exception pour aller à la rencontre d’autres bibliothèques belges dont les richesses – présentées ici sous des angles inédits – méritaient tout autant un éclairage de premier plan.
