    Please circulate widely
    Apologies for cross-posting

    A thematic issue of Literary and Linguistic Computing
    <http://www3.oup.co.uk/jnls/list/litlin/> is planned which aims to bring
    together a variety of papers reflecting the research of young scholars
    in the wide field of Humanities Computing. The editors of this volume
    (Melissa Terras and Edward Vanhoutte) are looking for candidates who
    will have a chance to report on their research in this most established
    journal in the discipline. Preference will be given to those at the
    start of their academic career, such as PhD or advanced master degree

    Participants should supply a brief outline of their academic history,
    current academic affiliation, date of birth, and abstracts of 500 words
    detailing the research being undertaken and outlining the subject of
    their paper. Each proposal will be subject to peer review, with the ten
    best being selected for publication in this volume of LLC. Authors
    chosen for publication will be then required to submit a 4-5,000 word
    paper regarding their research. Each author will have the opportunity to
    be mentored by a senior scholar in the discipline to aid in the
    completion of their paper.

    Proposals should be sent no later than March 1st 2002 to the editors at
    <evanhoutte@kantl.be>. Applicants will be contacted regarding their
    proposal in early June 2002. Successful applicants will be required to
    submit their papers by November 2002. Publication is planned for the
    Spring 2003.

    This is an excellent opportunity for young scholars in the field of
    Humanities Computing to be published in a widely read, esteemed journal.
    Although this call is primarily for young scholars in Humanities
    Computing, all proposals will be considered as long as they are not from
    those who hold a full time academic post. People who have began their
    academic careers late, and have not yet had the opportunity to establish
    themselves in their discipline are encouraged to submit a paper. The
    editors are striving for as wide a coverage of Humanities Computing as
    possible and encourage senior academics to circulate this call for
