             Subject: interview with Allen Renear

    Humanists will be interested in the resurfacing of an interview with Allen
    Renear, past president of the ACH and now Associate Professor in the
    Graduate School of Library and Information Science, University of Illinois,
    Urbana-Champaign. It had been published in Fox News Online but was removed
    some time ago -- as old news? In any case, it's available at
    <http://www.stg.brown.edu/pub/local/foxinterview.htm> and still makes
    interesting reading.

             Subject: Parzival-Project

    Dear list,

    the Parzival Project, based at the University of Basle (Switzerland), now has
    its own homepage:


    Our project team is planning a critical electronic edition of parts of Wolfram
    von Eschenbach's 'Parzival', a German poem composed between 1200 and 1210. The
    edition includes transcriptions and digital images of all manuscripts. We are
    also concentration on stemmatological analysis using philological and
    phylogenetic methods (borrowed from natural sciences).

    Best wishes

    Michael Stolz
    University of Basle
