Dear Textual Scholars:

For my own department's future planning, I need to compile a list of
departments of Textual Studies/ Humanities Computing, and of those
departments of English that have this as a stated area of expertise.
I am only concerned with Departments in the US and the UK. I would be
very appreciative if list members could supply me with any
information they have, either about their own departments or others.

Thank you very much,
Suzanne Gossett

digital manuscript resource

The Higher Education Academy/JISC collaboration team are currently
requesting subject specific input to feed into a HEFCE funding bid to
digitise Islamic manuscripts.

If anyone knows of Islamic manuscripts which it would be useful for
classicists to have access to through a digital resource (for either
teaching or, more likely, research - arabic manuscripts of Aristotle
spring to my mind and I think there are Euclidean geometry texts, so the
researchers in the fields of Ancient Medicine and Ancient Science may
well have suggestions) could they please contact Dr Sonja Cameron at

Many thanks,
