    *** X-posted -- Apologies for duplication ***

              EXEMPLARIA is pleased to announce the launch on its World Wide Web
    site of "Medieval Noise," a Special Cluster under the Guest Editorship of
    Professor Jeffrey Jerome Cohen (The George Washington University),
    containing the following five articles:

    Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, Guest Editor
    "'Kyte oute yugilment': An Introduction to Medieval Noise"

    Michelle R. Warren (University of Miami)
    "The Noise of Roland"

    Valerie J. Allen (John Jay College of Criminal Justice - CUNY)
    "Broken Air"

    Peter W. Travis (Dartmouth College)
    "Thirteen Ways of Listening to a Fart: Noise in Chaucer's Summoner's Tale"

    Michael Uebel (University of Kentucky)
    "Acoustical Alterity"

              The URL is


    The cluster will remain on-line through the early autumn of 2004. The
    front-page contains an e-mail link to each of the authors following his or
    her name, and an e-mail link to EXEMPLARIA staff as well. Readers should
    feel free to communicate with the authors about their articles; equally,
    they should feel free to call to the attention of the editors of EXEMPLARIA
    any problems that they may have with the site itself.

              The webprints are launched as .pdf files (so as to preserve
    formatting and uniform pagination across multiple platforms), and these can
    be opened and read with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.

              In launching this essay on the World Wide Web, EXEMPLARIA
    subscribes to the "Principles for Emerging Systems of Scholarly Publishing"
    published on the World Wide Web by the Association of Research Libraries at URL

    http://www.arl.org/scomm/tempe.html (last accessed 10.28.03)

    and we recommend this position paper to our colleagues using our website
    who, like us, are concerned about the future of scholarly publishing.

    Sincerely yours,
    Al Shoaf
