I would like to invite people in different disciplines to review
instructional courseware for COMPUTERS AND THE HUMANITIES. Disciplines
include languages, literature, linguistics, music, history, art history,
and humanistically oriented social science.
If you are interested, please let me know your area of expertise
and the type of equipment you work with. Also indicate specific products
you would like to review or whether you prefer to choose from an
annotated list of courseware in your field.
Reviewing provides an excellent opportunity to examine
instructional software without having to buy it; many distributors are
willing to supply complimentary copies or 60-day examination copies
(not just demos) to have them reviewed in important journals like
CHum. Reviews of hardware that are particularly suited to instructional
needs are also welcome.
I shall be happy to send you brief criteria, guidelines, and
suggestions for writing reviews, which would be due 60 days after
receiving software. Please contact Estelle Irizarry, Courseware
Editor, CHum, jnet%"irizarry@guvax" (Georgetown University, ICC407,
