Subject: Humanities Computing Conference on 6/25/93

June 21, 1993
Dear HUMANIST Colleague,
I forward to you an invitation from Dr. Malcolm Brown,
Director of Academic Computing at Dartmouth College, for a regional conference
on literary computing featuring Dr. John F. Burrows, well-known scholar
on Jane Austen, dialectology and computer-assisted literary research,
who will be speaking this Friday at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New
Hampshire. There is no fee for attendance.


I'd like extend an invitation to explore the application of computing to
scholarship and instruction that works with texts as its primary sources.

Professor John Burrows of the University of Newcastle will be visiting
Dartmouth at the end of June. He will be conducting a "master class" on the
use of computer analysis tools in scholarship and teaching that has as its
primary focus textual material. Professor Burrows' class will focus on a
comparison of Elizabethean and Romantic tragedies. The class will include
demonstrations of computer programs used to study literary and critical
issues about these texts. It is a session that will be of interest to
scholars in the humanities and social sciences who work extensively with
texts and textual resources.

The initial session is scheduled for Friday, June 25th, starting at 9:00
a.m. (please contact me at the e-mail address or telephone number below
for precise information). All three sessions will be available at no cost.
Advance registration (for all or part) is, however, necessary.

If you are interested in attending all or part of this class (or have
questions and want to know more), please contact me by e-mail at
Malcolm_Brown@dartmouth.edu or by telephone at 603-646-1349.

Session 1 will be in one hall (105 Dartmouth Hall). Sessions 2 & 3 will be
held in 2 Rockefeller on the main Dartmouth campus.

Best regards,
Malcolm Brown
