Some time ago I had proposed to Dr. Willard to include in his
regular list of "new on the web" a page that I had been working on
to automatically create links between occurences of words in an HTML
document. At the time, he expressed interest in the idea but very
rightly suggested that I provide much better explanations as to how
the system works. Well, since then I haven't had (taken the) time to
change anything, but I couldn't resist replying to a recent message
about making a document hypertextual within itself:

Here's the link to the site together with a warning that it is a work
in progress and of more interest conceptually than practically. It's
intended to be several things at once but mainly a dynamic frequency
list generator of words and word clusters (at the moment it is very

(frames needed)

As I've said, it's been neglected for a couple of months but I'm
going to polish it up for a poster and demonstration in June, so I
would very much welcome all comments and suggestions.

Work to become, not to acquire

Subject: Summer Fellowships -- Please Forward

Please forward the following announcement to any other lists where it is
likely to be seen by graduate students, especially those living or
studying in the southeastern U.S. Thanks!


Graduate students in English and in other related humanities
disciplines (such as English education, history, comparative literature,
philosophy, cultural studies, etc.) are hereby invited to apply to
participate in a special seminar to be offered during the summers of 1997
and 1998 at Auburn University at Montgomery (Alabama).
The seminars, funded by a generous grant from the A.W. Mellon
Foundation, are designed to assist students who are in the midst of
working on extended writing projects, especially those (such as
dissertations) required for completion of graduate degrees. Graduate
students (including adjunct faculty) at colleges or universities in
Alabama and in adjacent states are especially encouraged to apply.
Funding from the Mellon Foundation will cover the costs of
in-state tuition and will assist with costs of transportation and some
other expenses. The amount of each student's grant will be determined
mainly by proximity and need.
The Mellon seminars at AUM are particularly designed to give
graduate students an opportunity to study and discuss the variety of
interpretive approaches now available to persons working in the
humanities. Many of these approaches strongly conflict with one another
and therefore pose genuine challenges to anyone presently attempting to
write on topics in the humanities.
"Critical pluralism" is an approach that emphasizes the potential
usefulness of a variety of interpretive theories without giving exclusive
emphasis to any single point of view. It encourages mutual understanding
and dialogue rather than hostile conflict between adherents of different
theories. At the same time, it encourages the proponents of various
theories to approach their own viewpoints with skepticism and rigorous
Professor Robert C. Evans of AUM's Department of English and
Philosophy will lead the seminar. Graduate students interested in
applying to participate as Fellows are encouraged to contact him as soon
as possible by phone (334-244-3376), by e-mail (bobevans@strudel.aum.edu),
by regular mail (English, AUM, Montgomery, AL 36117), or by fax
(334-244-3740). The seminar will meet for four hours once a week on
Saturday afternoons during the ten-week summer quarter, which begins in
early June. Participants will receive regular academic credit.
Additional information about AUM is available on the World Wide Web at
Please apply ASAP for fullest consideration for the 1997 seminar.
Applications received by May 10 will have the best chance of being funded
this year. Enrollment is limited to encourage vigorous discussion.
