    replying to this message. Include your name and affiliation. There will

    How to Understand XML

    In this four-hour introduction to XML, the essence of XML will be
    explored to better understand its structure and its use. If you have
    wondered what XML is, where it came from, where it will take you, and
    why does everyone make such a big deal about being well-formed and valid
    - questions that tutorials cover sketchily - this seminar will get you
    off to a good start.

    Roger Sperberg is an XML and e-book consultant.

    The Computing in the Humanities User's Group Presents

    The Convergence of Digital Media Rhetoric.

    Anders Fagerjord University of Oslo

    Friday June 8, 3pm STG Conference Room, Grad Center, Tower E

    A popular expectation is that all media will converge onto one Web-like broadband medium. In his Ph.D. project, Anders Fagerjord addresses this view with a list of questions. If media do melt together, what will the result look like? What forms of writing, of sound and video editing, and of interactivity will work in such a medium? He compares Web versions of radio, magazines, and television with their parent versions, noting how the forms of the older media influence forms in the Web versions, and what forms the Web medium seems to add. In the talk, he will outline the project and present some preliminary results.

    Anders Fagerjord is a Research Fellow at the Department of Media and Communication, University of Oslo, Norway. January-August 2001, he is a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Brown University's Scholarly Technology Group. Anders holds a Candidatus Philologiae in Media and Communication from the University of Oslo (1997). Outside of academia, he has worked as a radio host and as a Web designer.
