    Wisbey Lecture in Humanities Computing
    King's College London

    King's College London has agreed that the Centre for Computing in the
    Humanities should establish an annual lecture in the application of
    computing in humanities research, to be named the Wisbey Lecture. It is so
    named to acknowledge the pioneering role at King's, at the University of
    Cambridge and internationally, of Professor Roy Wisbey, who started
    applying computing techniques in his own research in the 1960s and was one
    of the founding members of the Association for Literary and Linguistic
    Computing. The ALLC came into being in 1973 at a meeting held at King's
    (also attended by, among others, Susan Hockey, Wilhelm Ott and the late
    Antonio Zampolli).

    The first lecture in our series Digital Scholarship, Digital Culture, to be
    given this evening by Professor Stanley Katz (Princeton), has been
    designated as the first Wisbey Lecture. We are delighted that Roy and his
    wife Erni, along with Wilhelm and Hannelore Ott and Susan and Martin
    Hockey, will all be attending the lecture as guests of honour.

    Information about the Wisbey Lecture and the series as a whole can be found
    on the CCH web site, at:

    Following suggestions made on Humanist, all the lectures, including the one
    this evening by Stan Katz, are being recorded, and will be webcast.
