Subject: The Electronic Scholiast Conf at Leeds

Is anyone out there planning to attend the above-mentioned conference
this coming July? This conference is going to bring together people
interested in creating machine readable Latin and Greek lexica. I'm
supposed to give a little presentation, but I don't have a clear idea
of the audience. I don't want to insult, bore or amuse anyone overly

1) I have colleagues in the French secondary system who are preparing a
competitive exam (agregation). One of their special subjects is
'Painting in the U.S. since 1945'. Can anyone with an interest in the
field suggest a short list of relevant material published in the States,
which I will pass on? Whilst on the subject, I should like to acquire a
copy of the catalogue to the 'High and Low: modern art and popular
culture' exhibition on at the New York Museum of Modern Art. Can anyone
either get me a copy, which I will pay for in advance in cash, or send
me the address of the relevant commercial services at the Museum?

2) Does anyone out there have a corpus of North American advertisement
texts. I have a class project lined up which uses British material, but
would like to extend the text analysis to American advertisements if
