The aim of the courses organized by Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa within the frame work of the ENArC project, is to give post graduate students and young professionals the opportunity to enhance their theoretic and practical knowledge in the field of digital applications for archival management, as well as to get in touch with the results of national and international projects in this field. This will give the students a chance to align their reserch and/or their daily work with the most advanced results on European level, as well as to spread the best practices developed by the internationla community in their research or working communities.

Within the course running from May 28th to 1st June “ICARUS4education: The Network of the European Historic Archives from Ecclesiastic Archives to European Archival Platforms” will show how local based projects e.g the Monasterium platform, can evolve to an important international community by means of cooperation and making use of common resources and thereby become an important content provider for larger platforms.

At the same time, it is important to sensitize and familiarize young archivists and researchers – our future responsibles for archival institutions – with international standards of European archival sciences and platforms.

Lecturers of the course will represent the archival platform of Church Archives and some of case studies developed by single archives within this frame work as well as current ICARUS projects. The students will also partecipate in a Monasterium training session using the documents of the Franciscan Archive in Assisi.

About the SNS:

The Scuola Normale of Pisa was formally founded on the 18th of October, 1810 by a Napoleonic decree as a publicly funded institute, as a subsidiary of Paris’ École Normale Supérieure. The shared name “normale” refers to the mission of the school, which was to train middle and high school teachers able to convey “norms” in a context where training teachers was still strongly connected to “forming” citizens loyal to the laws and the emperor.

Nowadays  SNS is an elite school that awards merit, talents and potentialities of the students independently from their origins and previous studies. A fondamental role is played by the relationships with other universities and research institutions.

From the 90ies onwards, SNS promoted a post graduate course program, in the field of cultural heritage and new technologies, in order to provide professional training for archeologists, art- historians, museum professionals, archivists etc…
