this is to inform all of you who may not know it, that U. of
Virginia has recently established an Institute for Advancd
Technology in the Humanities, which will be sponsoring humanities
research projects that utilize electronic technology. the
insitute aims to develop research projects primarily, with
pedagogy being viewed as spinoff. two projects are currently
being sponsored, my own "Dante Gabriel Rossetti: A Hypermedia
Research Archive of the Complete Writings and Pictures", and a
history project (i forget the exact title) developed by Ed Ayers
of our history department here (American Civil War). at the
moment fellowships are being solicited only for UVA people, but
if our funding and develpment plas go ahead as we hope, the
institute will be open to projects from people outside UVA. for
more information get in touch with Bill Wulf here at UVA in
