Subject: call for papers
Invitation to submit proposals for papers for a seminar on "The
Computer in Eighteenth Century Studies" during the ASECS
meeting 2001 (18.-22. April 2001 in New Orleans).
The main intention of the 90 min seminar with 4 papers (each 20
min) will be to discuss different approaches in Humanities
computing for 18th Century studies.
Here is my description of the seminar intended for a wider public
but it should give you an idea of the seminar:
The digital revolution brought pcs on the desks of many scholars
and most of them are connected to the internet. The aim of the
seminar is to show that this not only made communication easier but
also enriched the stock of approaches which are now open to a
scholar. Editions and text collection with complex link systems and
powerful text retrieval options, databases for structured
information and even for images and facsimiles, computer aided
statistical text analysis - all these possiblities make the access to a
lot of information very easy but they also have their own share of
problems an informed user has to know about.
Deadline for proposals: 15.9.2000
