CSMC, Hamburg

Deadline: 28 January 2022

With the J. P. Gumbert Dissertation Award, the CSMC honours the best doctoral thesis defended in 2021 that contributes to any aspect of the study of manuscripts and other written artefacts. We now welcome nominations.

The CSMC is happy to announce the second edition of the J. P. Gumbert Award. Johan Peter Gumbert (1936-2016) was Professor and Professor Emeritus of Western Palaeography and Codicology at Leiden University from 1979 to 2001, and an expert on Latin and Dutch manuscripts. As a frequent guest at the Universität Hamburg, he was associated with the CSMC from its very beginning as well as with the COMSt-Network (Comparative Oriental Manuscript Studies).

The successful dissertation contributes to any aspect of the study of manuscripts and other written artefacts from fields such as art history, history, codicology, epigraphy, material sciences, palaeography, or philology. Its research focus can be on any period or region. Included in the award is a prize money of 5,000 Euro and fellowship for a research stay at CSMC.

The first winners of the award were Hui Sun (Heidelberg) and Jeremiah Coogan (Notre Dame) for their dissertations ‘Funerary Lists from Early Chinese Shaft Tombs’ and ‘Eusebius the Evangelist: Rewriting the Fourfold Gospel in Late Antiquity’, respectively.

More information on the conditions of the award and how to make a nomination is available here. The deadline for nominations is Friday, 28 January 2022, 12:00 pm CET.
