Subject: Busa Award
As many readers of this list will know, the Roberto Busa Award is made
every three years by the Association for Computers and the Humanities
and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing to honour
outstanding achievement in the application of information technology
to humanistic research. It honors Roberto Busa, SJ, one of the
founders of the field of humanities computing.
We are very pleased to announce that the winner of the Roberto Busa
Award for the year 2001 is Emeritus Professor John F Burrows of the
University of Newcastle, Australia. Professor Burrows has made a
substantial contribution to the development and application of
statistical and computing tools for the analysis of literary
texts. His seminal work on features of style in Jane Austen's writings
spawned a whole new field of textual scholarship and his numerous
publications on computational stylistics and authorship attribution
have been an inspiration to a generation of scholars.
The Award will be made, and Professor Burrows will give the Busa Award
Lecture, at ACH/ALLC 2001 in New York City, at which we hope to see
many Humanist readers.
