    Dear fellow Humanists

    You might be interested to know the whereabouts of our esteemed Editor in
    the middle of February.... Willard has been invited to the University of
    Victoria, BC, Canada, as a Lansdowne visitor. Named after a long-ago
    Governor General of Canada, and owing its existence in part to the original
    Hudson's Bay Company, the endowment enables departments at UVic to invite
    outstanding scholars and creative artists to speak to their colleagues and
    members of the community.

    Willard will join a group of eminent scientists, humanists, writers and
    performers who have spent 3-4 fairly intense days among us in the past
    thirty years. While he's here, he will be giving a public address
    ("Millennial Thoughts") on the Humanities and computing, as well as
    seminars to his colleagues and university librarians. He will also tell us
    about the Centre for Computing in the Humanities at Kings College London,
    as a speaker in our series of talks and demos of best practices in the
    Humanities IT in Teaching Showcase (HITTS). As we say, "intense"; but in
    the spirit of his westcoast roots, he will also have a day-long chance to
    catch the 'coniferous' air, smell the Pacific surf, watch the eagles if he
    so desires.

    In anticipation of a fruitful visit,
    Peter Liddell
