The summer school in Scandinavian Manuscript Studies is a collaboration between the Department of Nordic Research at the University of Copenhagen and the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies at the University of Iceland. It affords students a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with manuscripts under the guidance of researchers from the two institutions.
