If you or someone you know is contemplating a PhD, you might want to consider this offer from King’s College London. To quote from the blurb:
the topic of the PhD will be palaeography, conceived as the study of medieval handwriting, in the context of Digital Humanities
Given that palaeography is in decline, bringing in the digital element, as this studentship does, could see it live on in a new form, and certainly help to disseminate the subject. So please spread the word!
