    To members of the Humanities Computing Community:

    As part of an effort to make the annual ACH/ALLC meeting an especially
    useful event for graduate students, the Association for Computers and the
    Humanities is this year initiating a series of structured activities for
    job seekers in humanities computing (both academic and industry positions).
    We will be conducting these at the annual conference, this year at NYU June
    13-17 (see the web page at http://www.nyu.edu/its/humanities/ach_allc2001).

    While the conference is in session, we plan to facilitate one-to-one
    mentoring meetings with prospective job seekers, probably over lunch.
    Mentors will be members the ACH's ad hoc committee on job seeking
    activities, all of whom have had first-hand experience with the "market" in
    this field: Julia Flanders, Matthew Kirschenbaum, Wendell Piez, and
    Geoffrey Rockwell. (Lorna Hughes also serves as a committee member, but
    she'll be busy running the conference this year . . . ) In addition, we're
    putting together a poster display explicating (or deconstructing) a typical
    humanities computing job ad, and a binder listing currently available
    positions in the field.

    Please reply to Wendell Piez <wapiez@mulberrytech.com> if you'd like to
    chat with a mentor during the conference, and mention whether you're
    interested in academic or industry work (or both). We'd also be happy to
    hear from anyone interested in serving as a mentor themselves, or with
    suggestions for the kind of activities this committee might undertake in
    the future. Finally, please pass the word about this opportunity to any
    students or associates who might be interested, encouraging them to take part.

    Thank you,

    Julia Flanders
    Lorna Hughes
    Matthew Kirschenbaum
