         Subject: Doctoral Reading Lists in Humanities Computing
                  and the Digital Humanities
Dear Fellow HUMANISTs,

My department and faculty are moving toward offering specialisations of
several kinds in humanities computing and the digital humanities,
including graduate coursework and PhD-level candidacy in the area.
We're now exploring the possibility of setting a standard reading-list
framework for doctoral candidacy exams, and I write to ask if any in our
group with experience in this might like to share some of their

Ideally, I'd like to be able to bring to my local colleagues, most of
whom will not have a background in the area, both a sense of why it is
important (from a variety of perspectives) to provide such a reading
list and what similar readings lists at other institutions look like.
I'd welcome any and all thoughts and examplary lists!

All best wishes,

R.G. Siemens
