CATH '94
Computers and Teaching in the Humanities
Glasgow University
9 - 12th September, 1994


CATH is the annual forum of the Computers in Teaching Initiative Centre for
Textual Studies and the Office for Humanities Communication. It provides an
opportunity for those using computers in humanities teaching and research to
discuss new developments, achievements, and methods in the field.

The theme of this year's conference is "Courseware in Action". Papers are
welcomed which concentrate on the practical applications of courseware in the
classroom. In particular submissions are invited on the following topics:

-courseware development

-practical issues pertaining to the implementation of
CAL in the classroom

-evaluation procedures

We would especially welcome papers from those new to the subject of
humanities computing.

The conference will be made up of a series of sessions. Each session will last
90 minutes and will include three papers. Submissions are invited for
individual papers (lasting 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions) or for
entire sessions.

Furthermore, if you would like to organise a workshop presentation, or
classroon simulation, then please contact the organisers directly
for more information [It is expected that each workshop or simulation
will last approximately two hours]. During the conference there will also be
a software fair. If you would like to show material at this, then please
contact the organisers as soon as possible to discuss hardware and software
