This programme provides specialist research training to doctoral students working on Renaissance and Early Modern subjects in a range of disciplines at universities across the UK and the rest of the world. The programme draws on the combined skills in electronic resources, archival sources, manuscripts, books, and images of the staff of the Warburg Institute and the University of Warwick. These are two of the major centres in Britain for the study of the Renaissance and the Early Modern period.

The programme consists of three one-day workshops. The first workshop is held at the University of Warwick. The second and third workshops are held at the Warburg Institute in London. The programme is taught by staff from the Warburg Institute and the University of Warwick. The programme is available to doctoral students from universities across the UK and overseas. The workshops are entitled 'Electronic Resources', 'Images', and 'Texts'.

Workshop 1: 'Electronic Resources' (University of Warwick) Friday, 6 March 2009
Building on students' basic IT skills, this workshop focuses on practical training skills for the researcher in the field. There is a particular emphasis on the methodological and practical challenges for Early Modern/Renaissance specialists. Doctoral students are introduced to current research on and best practice in emerging technologies reflecting specialist knowledge of and training in Early Modern/Renaissance source material. The workshop is taught by François Quiviger, Richard Parker, and Sarah Richardson.

Workshop 2: 'Images' (Warburg Institute) Thursday, 23 April 2009
This workshop provides tools for interpreting visual material from the Renaissance and Early Modern period, whether in the form of diagrams, emblems, titlepages, or ephemeral or permanent schemes of decoration. The emphasis is on showing how and why such visual material was devised, and what information it provides. In general, the topics under consideration are not authoritatively and/or succinctly covered in modern secondary works. The workshop is taught by Rembrandt Duits, Guido Giglioni, Charles Hope, Elizabeth McGrath, and Paul Taylor.

Workshop 3: 'Texts' (Warburg Institute) Friday, 24 April 2009
This workshop focuses on the practical skills needed to deal with the three main forms in which Renaissance and Early Modern texts were transmitted: archival documents, manuscripts and printed books. Doctoral students are given professional training in how to locate, describe and cite these specialist texts. Specialists in literature, history, philosophy and science explain the particular requirements for presenting texts of various European languages in their disciplines. The workshop is taught by Charles Burnett, Martin Davies, Guido Giglioni, Jill Kraye, Peter Mack, Penny Roberts, and Ingrid de Smet.
