CLIR Announces Fellowship Program in Scholarly Information Resources
for Humanists

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is now
accepting applications for the 2006 Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program
in Scholarly Information Resources for Humanists. Now in its third
year, the fellowship provides new scholars in the humanities a unique
opportunity to develop expertise in new forms of scholarly research
and the information resources that support them, both traditional and
digital, that are challenging research institutions in the changing
academic landscape. The program offers fellowships to individuals who
have earned their Ph.D.s in disciplines in the humanities within the
past five years (or who will earn them before starting the program)
and who believe that there are opportunities to develop meaningful
linkages between disciplinary scholarship, libraries, archives, and
evolving digital tools. All fields in the humanities will be
considered; Fellows must be in residence at a sponsoring institution
for the duration of the fellowship. Applications must be postmarked
by February 24, 2006. For more information about the CLIR Fellowship
and application procedures, please visit

ADHO - Allied Digital Humanities Associations

The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) and the
Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC) announce:
The Roberto Busa Award


The Roberto Busa Award is a joint award of the Association for
Computers and the Humanities (ACH) and the Association for Literary
and Linguistic Computing (ALLC). It is given every three years to
honour outstanding scholarly achievement in humanities computing.

The Award is named after Roberto Busa, SJ, who is regarded by many as
the founder of the field of humanities computing. The first award was
given to Father Busa himself in 1998. Subsequent recipients have
been Emeritus Professor John Burrows (2001), who helped to shape the
application of statistical methods to the analysis of textual style
and bridging the gap between traditional literary criticism and
computer-aided stylistics, and Emeritus Professor Susan Hockey
(2004), for her contribution to the establishment of the field of
Humanities Computing, and for her work on computers and text.

The next Busa Award will be given at the Digital Humanities 2007
conference, which will be held at the University of Illinois at
Urbana Champaign, USA.

The Award Committee (names listed below) invites nominations for this
award. Nominations may be made by anyone with an interest in
humanities computing and neither nominee nor nominator need be a
member of ACH or ALLC. Nominators should give some account of the
nominee's work and the reasons it is felt to be an outstanding
contribution to the field. A list of bibliographic references to the
nominees work is desirable. Nominators are welcome to resubmit
updated versions of unsuccessful nominations submitted in previous years.

Nominations should be sent to the Chair of the Award Committee, Lorna
Hughes, at the address lorna.hughes_at_kcl.ac.uk or AHRC ICT Methods
Network, Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College,
London, London WC2R 3DX, UK, no later than June 1st, 2006.
