PMC CALL FOR REVIEWS -- DEADLINE APRIL 10

------> REPLY TO: p-geyh@nwu.edu

_Postmodern Culture_ is looking for reviews of recent books, films, CDs,
plays, TV shows, concerts, sporting events, performances, exhibitions,
conferences and conventions, happenings, and so forth, for the May
1998 issue. Reviews should be approximately 2000-3500 words long, and
should follow the journal's format guidelines below.

The deadline for submissions is April 10. A selection will be made at
that time. All correspondence will be answered and all submissions will
be given careful consideration.

Send reviews and queries to Paula Geyh, the review editor at
p-geyh@nwu.edu, not to the _PMC_ offices. If e-mailing reviews, make sure
the document is not encoded, and that it has been stripped of all
word-processing codes (i.e, saved as ASCII or DOS text).

Submissions can also be sent on floppy disk to Paula Geyh at the Department
of English, 215 University Hall, Northwestern University, 1897 Sheridan
Road, Evanston, IL 60208.

All submissions should follow the format guidelines detailed below.

FORMAT GUIDELINES FOR _PMC_ REVIEWS

You can save us a good deal of work by following these guidelines:

Reviews should generally run between 2000 and 3500 words, or about
8-14 ordinary manuscript pages.

Set margins to half-inch left, two-inch right, and set your font
to Courier 10cpi (or any 10cpi, non-proportional font). This is very
important, as it prevents too many characters on a line.

Put a title at the top of the first page, and under it your name,
institutional affiliation, email address, and mailing address.
Center these lines.

Number all paragraphs of your text with bracketed numbers. These
bracketed numbers should be margin-released into the left-hand
margin (this will place them at the 0" spot on the line).

Indent (to 1") the first line of each pargraph and all lines of set-
off quotations.

Single-space the document throughout.

Use _this_ for underlining titles, *this* for bold print or
emphasis, %this% for foreign words, and ^this^ for superscript.

Footnotes, if any, should follow MLA format.

Page references in the text, if any, should not be preceded by p.,
pp., or any other notation; use just the page number itself.

countries who have modern facilities.

Additional goals of the School are:
? To serve as an ideal forum for contacts of specialists from the CEE region;

? To start building a network of institutions and individuals in the CEE region interested in the field.
Participants in the School will have the possibility to present their own experience in the field.

This message has been cross-posted, please excuse any duplication.

**Announcing the Second Summer Institute at the University of New
Brunswick / Fredericton / New Brunswick / Canada**

Creating Electronic Texts and Images -- a practical "hands-on"
exploration of the research, preservation and pedagogical uses of
electronic texts and images in the humanities.

August 16 - 21, 1998

Instructor: David Seaman, University of Virginia

Sponsored by the University of New Brunswick Library's Electronic
Text Centre (http://www.unb.ca/etc/) and the Department of Archives
and Special Collections

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The course will centre around the creation of a
set of electronic texts and digital images. Topics to be covered
include:

SGML tagging and conversion
Using the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines
The basics of archival imaging
The form and implications of XML Publishing
SGML on the World Wide Web
EAD - Encoded Archival Descriptions

The course is designed primarily for librarians and archivists who are
planning to develop electronic text and imaging projects; for scholars
who are creating electronic texts as part of their teaching and
research; and for publishers who are looking to move publications to
the Web. Course participants will create an electronic version of a
selection of Canadian literary letters from UNB's Archives and Special
Collections. Participants will encode the letters with TEI/SGML
tagging, tag an EAD finding aid (a one day course component) and
explore issues in creating digital images.

COURSE PREREQUISITES: This year's institute presupposes that
participants have some experience with the Web and HTML. It is highly
recommended that participants also have had some basic exposure to
other SGML applications besides HTML, such as TEI, XML or EAD. For
those with little or no previous experience with SGML applications,
there will be a one day introductory level session on Saturday, August
15. For those on the West Coast, an introductory session taught by
David Seaman will be offered on June 17, 1998 as a pre-conference
workshop at the Canadian Library Association Annual Conference & Trade
Show in Victoria, British Columbia.

FACILITIES: The course will be held in the Instructional Technology
LearningCentre (ITLC) in the Harriet Irving Library on the campus of
the University of New Brunswick. The lab is a state-of-the-art
facility with a Windows 95 PC for each participant and a high end
digital projection system.

The facility is air conditioned.

REGISTRATION FEES / HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS: Registration will be limited
to 20. The tuition $750.00 (Canadian dollars) will include all course
fees for the Institute, nutritional breaks, lunches and a number of
special events. Tuition does not include cost of accommodations. The
tuition for the UNB one-day (August 15) introductory workshop on HTML
and SGML is not included in the $750 and is an additional $75.00.
There will be five bursaries offered at $200.00 each for those who
could not otherwise afford to come to the Institute. The Lord
Beaverbrook Hotel in downtown Fredericton is offering special room
rates at:

$70.00 + tax (Canadian) Single Room
$77.00 + tax (Canadian) Double Room

Course participants will be responsible for making their own
reservations: Jill Amos - Contact Person - 506-455-3371

FURTHER INFORMATION: Detailed course
information will be available in April - see:

SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT
CALL FOR PAPERS
===============================

The Utrecht Congress on
"Storage and Computation
in Linguistics"

*****

Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS
Utrecht, The Netherlands,
October 19th, 20th and 21st , 1998

Deadline for submission of abstracts:
May 15th , 1998

*****

On the occasion of its tenth anniversary,
the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS is
organizing a three-day international
congress from October 19th through
October 21st 1998. The theme of this
congress is "Storage and Computation in
Linguistics". Invited speakers include:
Steve Pinker, evening lecture;
Ray Jackendoff (keynote lecture) / Frans Zwarts,
The Architecture of the Language Faculty;
Harald Clahsen / Steven Gillis, language
acquisition; John Ohala / Geert Booij,
language change; Sarah Thomason /
Pieter Muysken, language variation; Nicholas
Asher / Frans van Eemeren, discourse
analysis; Ed Keenan & Ed Stabler / Jan Koster,
grammar design.

Two distinct cognitive resources that
people may employ in interpreting and
producing linguistic utterances are,
on the one hand, memory, and, on the other,
computational procedures. An utterance may
be assigned a certain structure and
interpretation because it is recognized as an
instance of a pattern that is stored in memory,
or because computational procedures build up
a complex representation of that pattern. In
linguistics, this contrast is usually
identified with the contrast between lexicon
and grammar. In the context of this congress,
the distinction is broadly conceived as a
tool for exploring our understanding of
language structure and language use.

The relation between storage and
computation will be analysed on the
basis of a broad range of empirical
questions, concerning issues in the
representation and acquisition of linguistic
knowledge, the foundations of language
and information, and the cognitive and
computational aspects of language use
and processing. Implications of the
distinction between storage and
computation will be discussed for six
different domains of linguistic inquiry:
the architecture of the language faculty
language acquisition
language change
language variation
discourse analysis
grammar design

The format of the congress is as follows:
(1) A number of well-known linguistic
scholars of different persuasions and
from different subdisciplines are asked to
contribute invited papers relating to the
congress theme. There will be two invited
speakers for each of the six domains of
linguistic inquiry mentioned above.
(2) There will be around twenty slots
for presentations of selected papers.
Each selected paper will be allotted 25
minutes, including discussion. There will
only be plenary sessions.

===============================
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

congress
