Humanities Computing and Literary Criticism: Considering the Implicit

A Joint ACCUTE-COCH/COSH panel at the 1999
Congress of Learned Societies, Canada

Is there a Humanities Computing that is, now, of direct relevance to
literary studies? Papers in this panel will work towards answering this
question, in part: specifically, they will explore and comment upon
(generally or in detail) the underpinnings of the increasingly
interdependent relationship between extant literary critical discourses and
humanities computing theory (hypertext, informatic semitiocs, &c.) and
practice -- in a context which, though dependent upon earlier conceptions
of what the computer can bring to literary criticism and scholarship, is
ultimately situated in the present and looks toward the future.

Paper proposals or completed papers should be sent to Ray Siemens
<Raymond.Siemens@UAlberta.ca> or Andrew Mactavish <mactavis@mcmaster.ca> by
1 November 1998 for consideration.
