    You may remember that I strongly recommended to your attention a back issue
    of the printed-and-online journal Stanford Humanities Review,
    "Constructions of the Mind: Artificial Intelligence and the Humanities",
    <http://www.stanford.edu/group/SHR/4-2/text/toc.html>, but that at the time
    the links to individual articles were broken. Thanks to the kind
    intervention of a member of this group the problem with these links has
    been repaired. I esp recommend to your attention the articles by Philip E
    Agre, H M Collins, Douglas R Hofstadter, the interview of Heinz von
    Foerster by Stefano Franchi, Gven Gzeldere and Eric Minch and von
    Foerster's own keynote address for the International Conference, Systems
    and Family Therapy: Ethics, Epistemology, New Methods, held in Paris,
    France, October 4th, 1990.

    A couple of small quibbles: the links to the images at the top of each
    article are still broken, and several titles vary between the table of
    contents and the actual articles.

    Thanks to the repair work, I have also spotted vol 4.1, "Bridging the Gap:
    Where Cognitive Science Meets Literary Criticism", which is focused on
    Herbert Simon's article, "Literary Criticism: A Cognitive Approach". One is
    not surprised to find Hubert Dreyfus's "Simon's Simple Solutions". There is
    much else.

    Vol 6.1 offers (among other things) "The Origins of Literary Studies And
    Their End?" by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht, which bears on the topic of

    I am pleased to announce that, with the kind permission of HMSO, the full
    text of Phyllis Kaberry's 'Women of the Grassfields' is now available
    online. We hope that this will enable this classic text to be more widely
    used in the teaching of anthropology. It has been prepared for online
    access as part of the Experience Rich Anthropology Project (funded by HEFCE
    under their FDTL programme).

    Women of the Grassfields is available via

    The main ERA website is http://www.era.anthropology.ac.uk/

    We would welcome suggestions of other useful anthropological texts that are
    currently practically inaccessible because of being out-of-print or only
    published in the form of Goverment Reports etc.
    yours sincerely
