Topics of the Conference

The topics of the conference will as usual be a broad presentation of
every thing that is going on in history and computing. Papers are
invited on substantial subjects as well as methodological questions.

Among the expected topics are
-Standardization and exchange of machie readable data in the
historical disciplines
-Data analysis and presentation
-Event history analysis
-Text analysis
-Simulation and modelling
-Computer aided teaching
-Social and economic history
-Quantitative methods

At the forthcoming conference it would be natural, as the conference
is located in Scandinavia, if demographic studies and large data
collections would be a central issue

Furthermore a number of workshops on methodological questions will
be held in the spring of 1991. These workshops will present their
results for further discussions in workshop sessions at the conference.
One of these workshops is dedicated to the application of the TEI guidelines
in the field of history.

Papers are invited on all aspects of computing in history. The papers
will be published in a proceedings volume from the conference
provided that they are submitted in machine readable form
(WordPerfect or ASCII).

The Penn State Seminar in Feminist Literary Criticism offers
faculty and advanced graduate students in departments of
English and modern languages the opportunity to survey the
major issues and freshen their knowledge of recent feminist
criticism. Our four-day seminar includes presentations by
two well-known scholar-critics, Elizabeth Abel and Madelon
Sprengnether; discussions organized by these leaders; and
time for reading the materials on which the seminars will be
centered. The schedule and atmosphere are intended to
encourage informal discussions among participants.
