Description:
On August 23-29, 2021, the Sefer Center, together with the Institute of Oriental and Classical Studies at the Higher School of Economics, is holding an online summer school on field and digital research in Aramaic and Hebrew studies. The program of the school combines digital research that has already become habitual in the context of the pandemic with the experience of lecturers and tutors in the field research of Aramaic and Hebrew languages. For example, school participants will be able to try themselves in preparing for the publication of an already recorded field text, as well as conduct a study of lexical features in dialects of one of the Neo-Aramaic languages. In both cases, we are talking about processing an array of field data using modern digital resources and methods: electronic corpora, dictionaries and other linguistic databases. The lecture-seminar program of the school includes both classes directly related to research tracks and lectures that help to better understand the broader diachronic and theoretical perspective of research conducted within the school. Introductory lectures on the phonology and morphology of the modern Western Aramaic language (S. Lyozov) and the Turoyo language (Y. Furman), on the morphonology of Modern Hebrew (A. Olman), on the one hand, will help the participants of the research groups to prepare for their independent work, on the other hand, these lectures may be of interest to anyone who wants to become better acquainted with the current research of living Semitic languages. The scientific interests of the teachers participating in the school are also related to the ancient Semitic languages.

Working language of the online school is Russian. However, course by M. Morgenstern ("Diachronic processes in the classical Mandaic") will be delivered in English
