         Subject: announcement of CaSTA 02 release

I am delighted to announce that a special issue
of Computing in the Humanities Working Papers
(CHWP) titled "Working Papers from the First and
Second Canadian Symposium on Text Analysis
Research (CaSTA)" has been released to the
public. Please see:
<http://www2.arts.ubc.ca/chwp/Casta02/>. The
collection is also being prepared for publication
in a forthcoming issue of Text/Technology.

This collection of papers is derived from two
successive conferences, the first, in 2002, at
l'Université de Montréal, Faculté de droit (which
was hosted by Daniel Poulin) and the second, in
2003, at the University of Victoria's Humanities
Computing and Media Centre (which was hosted by
Michael Best and Peter Liddell). As Ray Siemens
says in the Introduction, "the two conferences
were the first two gatherings of the intentional
community associated with the institutional
network assembled for the Text Analysis Portal
for Research (TAPoR), based at McMaster
University and bringing together the leading
Humanities Computing centres in Canada." He goes
on to say that the collection touches "on issues
associated with digitization and the
representation and analysis of text, metadata
issues for humanities texts, the use of
humanities digital resources, the needs of the
humanities community, cross-disciplinary use of
texts, and well beyond," indicating the nature of
the work in which members of the TAPoR community
are engaged. Subjects range "from medieval
paleography, Shakespeare Studies, the work of
Robert Graves, and representations of marriage in
early modern France; to text mining, analytical
strategy and mark-up language, and principles of
electronic scholarly editions; to language
acquisition in infants, and linguistic corpora; and beyond."

You are invited to read some thoughtful
explorations of subjects pertinent to the humanities computing community.

Yours truly,
Barbara Bond, Editor
