Dear Humanists,

forgive me for a trivia game in the history of computer usage in the
Humanities (historical flavour).

(1) In which country of the world the year 1964 saw the publication of a
230 page university textbook on how to use computers in historical research?

(2) When was the following quote published in a top rated academic
journal, '*' standing for something which might have been 'digital

"Fear of, and animosity toward, * is one of the facts of contemporary
scholarly life. To a considerable degree, it arises from competition for
resources for research - a competition carried on with rhetorical and
conceptual weapons."

Apologies for wasting your time,
Manfred Thaller
