    The NINES steering committee is pleased to announce a new informational


    NINES is a group of distinguished scholars and humanities computing experts
    engaged in building a "networked interface for nineteenth-century
    electronic scholarship." This interface is to be an online research and
    publishing environment for integrated, peer-reviewed editorial and critical
    work in nineteenth-century studies, both British and American. NINES aims
    to address the crisis in humanities publishing and to move the rethinking
    of literary and cultural studies -- in method as well as theory -- by
    establishing an institutionalized mechanism for new kinds of digital-based
    analytic and interpretive practices.

    The website (at http://www.nines.org/ ) lists scholars serving on our
    Romantic, Victorian, and Americanist editorial boards, describes exciting
    analytical and pedagogical tools under construction, and offers a reading
    list and full description of the NINES project.

    The site also contains information about our planned summer workshops in
    electronic editing (for which successful applicants will receive fellowship
    funding) and presents guidelines for potential NINES contributors.

    We invite conversation and participation, and hope you will join us in our
    grassroots effort to shape humanities publication and computer-assisted

    On behalf of the NINES steering committee,
