CalRBS and COVID-19 Announcement

May 2, 2020

Greetings from Los Angeles! First, we hope you are all well and dealing with isolation in place as well as you can.
We were hoping to move forward with our in-person classes this summer for CalRBS 2020! However, after consulting with administrators at UCLA and given the uncertainty of the situation, we wanted to let you know that California Rare Book School will not be meeting physically this summer, neither at UCLA nor in Northern California.  While we wished to offer all 14 courses we originally scheduled, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering 4 courses in August, all remotely, on Zoom, without sacrificing quality.  Therefore, we will move forward with the following reduced program this summer. It took an act of nature, COVID-19, for this to happen.

Week 1 | August 3-7: English Paleography taught by Vanessa Wilkie

Week 2 | August 10-14: Teaching with Rare Materials: Critical approaches taught my Robert Montoya & Michaela Ullmann

Week 2 | August 10-14: History of Typography taught by Paul Shaw

Week 3 | August 17-21: Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts taught by Melissa Conway
