Subject: Sci-Fi Site Review Project

Fellow HUMANISTs, I submit the following announcement on behalf of an
advanced student of mine who has been developing what looks to become a
very useful model for the distributed reviewing of sites, an important
matter in helping to determine the quality of information on the web.
Please consider participating. Thanks.


> The Scholars' Technology Evaluation Project (STEP) Web Site is now
> on-line for your browsing usage. This site is dedicated to reviewing
> fantasy and science fiction Web sites for scholars. We have some
> excellent scholars doing the reviews themselves, and I believe anyone
> doing scholarly work in fantasy or science fiction will find this site
> useful.
> Point your browser (Netscape 2 or higher recommended, but not required)
> to http://www.umich.edu/~umfandsf/STEP/ and browse away.

The EPITEST-project: an experimental software for the analysis of "action"-structures in literary texts

EPITEST is an experimental software for the structural analysis of action structures in literary texts. It is based on concepts central to formalist and structuralist narratology, including the models developed by Vladimir Propp, Claude Bremond, Tzvetan Todorov, Algirdas Greimas and Thomas Pavel. The aim of EPITEST is to facilitate the detailed differential analysis of action-structures in larger samples of pre-encoded literary texts. A detailed, updated description of the EPITEST-project including graphs is now available at the following address:
