             Subject: call for referees & mentors

    Dear Colleague,

    Literary and Linguistic Computing is planning to publish two special issues
    devoted to young scholars in IT and the Humanities. The submission period
    for abstract has closed now and we are happy to inform you that we have
    received 34 abstracts for papers by 38 young scholars from 15 countries all
    over the world.

    In order to put these abstracts into a refereeing system, and to guarantee
    high quality contents of the planned issues of LLC, we seek your urgent
    assistance in two ways:

    Firstly, the guest-editors are still in need of willing specialists in the
    fields of corpus linguistics and linguistic computing to referee a maximum
    of three 500 word abstracts.

    Secondly, we are planning to assign each young scholar a mentor who will be
    able to coach them in their (often first) enterprise of writing a
    high-quality paper. The coaching will typically consist of proofreading and
    discussing a draft version of the paper, pointing out the weaknesses in the
    argument, referring to further sources on the subject, and --why not--
    introducing them to the welcoming community of Humanities Computing. With
    this scheme, we hope to be of service to both the upcoming generation of
    humanities computing specialists, and the growing field itself. More
    mentors are still wanted.

    Please let us know before August 20th by email on <evanhoutte@kantl.be> if
    you would consider acting as a referee and/or a mentor. If so, please
    select your field of interest from the following list (please copy and tick):

    [] electronic scholarly editing
    [] text encoding (TEI / SGML / XML / XSLT etc.)
    [] (foreign) language learning
    [] corpus linguistics
    [] computational linguistics
    [] lexicography
    [] stylistic analysis
    [] literary computing
    [] hypertext theory / theory of the electronic text
    [] multimedia
    [] computer aided learning / educational software

    Very many thanks in advance,

    Melissa Terras & Edward Vanhoutte
    guest-editors LLC issues on young scholars in IT and the Humanities
