Subject: CORRECTION- Summer Institute - Creating Electronic Texts
- David Seaman
This past week a spurious e-mail announcing a Summer Institute at the
University of New Brunswick, Creating Electronic Texts with David Seaman,
was sent out to a number of lists. In order to clear up any confusion that
may have arisen from this incident I would like to announce that the
Electronic Text Centre at the University of New Brunswick will be offering
this summer as part of its Summer Seminar Series two one week courses,
running concurrently, the week of August 16 (2004). The first is Essentials
of Electronic Publishing, covering Principles of transcription and editing;
the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI); Basic data structuring; Using XML;
HTML/SGML to XML conversion; Cascading Stylesheets; and XSL transformations.
This hands-on course will be taught by David Gants, a Canada Research Chair
in Humanities computing at the University of New Brunswick. The second
course will be an introduction to EAD publishing technology and methods,
another hands-on course. Daniel Pitti will be the instructor. Daniel was
the Coordinator of the Encoded Archival Description initiative and is
currently Interim Co-Director of IATH (Institute for Advanced Technology in
the Humanities) at the University of New Brunswick.
More information on these new course offerings will be sent out within the
next two weeks.

-------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sat, 27 Mar 2004 08:28:30 +0000 From: Gina Anzivino <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Conference on Fine Print: Publishing in the Shadow of Big Media
Fine Print: Publishing in the Shadow of Big Media, May 19-21, 2004 at UC Irvine Organized by the Humanities Center, HumaniTech, and the UC Irvine Libraries
As our attention turns toward what will be one of the most consequential presidential campaigns in decades, we gather to ask how book and journal publishing matters. Trade presses continue to undergo significant transformations, as beleaguered houses cling precariously to the thin black margins that keep them afloat within larger and more profitable corporations. Many have had to moderate their tones, pander to their readers, and downsize their offerings. Likewise the hard-hitting, New Journalistic "long form" of magazine and journal reporting gives way to the pseudo-cerebral sound bite, to the judiciously executed balancing acts of those ever in need of more readers. Thus the range of opinion available to a national audience consistently shrinks -- like the endangered public domain itself -- before the steady advance of Big Media. We gather to ask what is to be done.
This conference will combine daily presentations and round tables from different sectors of this diverse industry. Discussions will be facilitated by UCI faculty from the School of Humanities.
Keynote Speakers: Fireside Chat with David Halberstam, May 19 7:30 p.m. Beckman Center Auditorium Victor Navasky, May 20 3:30 p.m. UCI Student Center Lawrence Lessig, May 20 7:30 p.m. UCI Student Center Michael Wolff, May 21 5:00 p.m. UCI Student Center

Smith, Will Swaim, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, Steve Wasserman, Ken Wissoker, Lynne Withey, George Wolfe, and Geoffrey Wolff.
