             Subject: Computer-related sessions at the 2002 MLA Convention

    Some Humanist readers may be attending this year's Modern Language
    Association convention in New York City at the end of the month.
    There are a number of talks on humanities computing and related
    subjects at the MLA, and to help those interested in finding them, the
    Association for Computers and the Humanities has compiled a guide to
    these talks, based on the convention program. It is available at:


    As always, the list has some interest even if you're not attending:
    comparing this list with those from past years is a good way to get an
    idea of changing trends, both in computing and in the field of
    literary studies in general. One can see a slight downward trend in
    sheer numbers compared to the last year or two, but I suspect one
    reason is that talks involving computing in some way trumpet this less
    obviously than they once did; in compiling this list I'm mostly just
    going on the titles of talks, because there is usually no other
    information available about them.

    Special offer for Humanist readers: if you want a link from your talk
    to your home page, or if your talk is not there but should have been,
    just ask me and these lapses will be magically corrected!
