Announcing the
2004 Digital Humanities / Humanities Computing Summer Institute

* Mandate
The mandate of the institute is to provide an environment ideal to discuss,
to learn about, and to advance skills in the new computing technologies
that influence the way in which those in the Arts and Humanities carry out
their teaching and research today. The institute will take place across a
week of intensive coursework, seminar participation, and lectures, and it
will bring together faculty, staff, and graduate student theorists,
experimentalists, technologists, and administrators from different areas of
the Arts and Humanities -- plus members of the digital library, library,
and archival studies community, and beyond -- to share ideas and methods,
and to develop expertise in applying advanced technologies to their
teaching and research.
