             Subject: call for papers

    Invitation to submit proposals for papers for a seminar on "The
    Computer in Eighteenth Century Studies" during the ASECS
    meeting 2001 (18.-22. April 2001 in New Orleans).

    The main intention of the 90 min seminar with 4 papers (each 20
    min) will be to discuss different approaches in Humanities
    computing for 18th Century studies.

    Here is my description of the seminar intended for a wider public
    but it should give you an idea of the seminar:

    The digital revolution brought pcs on the desks of many scholars
    and most of them are connected to the internet. The aim of the
    seminar is to show that this not only made communication easier but
    also enriched the stock of approaches which are now open to a
    scholar. Editions and text collection with complex link systems and
    powerful text retrieval options, databases for structured
    information and even for images and facsimiles, computer aided
    statistical text analysis - all these possiblities make the access to a
    lot of information very easy but they also have their own share of
    problems an informed user has to know about.

    Deadline for proposals: 15.9.2000
