Subject: HERG Conference Session

HERG (the Humanities Higher Education Research Group) are holding a one day
conference here at the Open University on April 23rd. The theme of the
conference is RESEARCH into the TEACHING of HUMANITIES in Higher (or adult or
post-K12) Education, reviewing both practice and priorities.

I will be chairing one of the afternoon discussion sessions ... looking at
Humanities Computing. In view of the topic (and my own research interest: the
use of CMC [Computer Mediated Conferencing/Communication] in the teaching of
the humanities) I thought it might be good practice to open the discussion out
to include the worldwide humanities audience represented through HUMANIST.

If you have any views or news regarding recent or forthcoming projects in the
use of computers in the teaching of the humanities I would be grateful if you
would share them with me (and, through me, the delegates on the 23rd).

Looking forward to any comments ... cheers
