(North wing, ground floor, down the ramp behind the coffee bar and
follow the passage)

Twenty-first century scholars are the heirs of a millenia-long
tradition of textual scholia and commentaries - arguably the world's
first inherently hypertextual documents. This paper explores the
considerable potential current hypertext technologies such as HTML and
XLink hold for the classical commentary - and the possibly
insurmountable obstacles that prevent this potential from being

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

Scholarship, Pedagogy, and Electronic Publication

The Conference: Bringing Text Alive:
The Future of Scholarship, Pedagogy, and Electronic Publication

Announces that registration is now available at

This exciting conference will be addressing many issues relating to the
future of electronic resources in the humanities. With the help of the
Delmas Foundation, Newsbank-Readex, ProQuest Information and Learning, and
Thomson-Gale, the Text Creation Partnership (TCP) project at the University
of Michigan has put together an exciting program of over 30 speakers in Ann
Arbor on September 15 & 16, 2006.

The conference will cover a wide array of issues relating to both scholars
and librarians including:

1. New paradigms in scholarship:
How do scholars create new electronic environments in which to do their
research and teaching?
Do e-texts necessitate the creation of virtual research/learning
How do such environments change "traditional" practices?
How should scholars harness these changes to best fulfill their needs?

2. Collaboration between libraries and academic departments
What opportunities are available with electronic technology?
What kinds of collaborations exist currently?
How have these enhanced research and pedagogical opportunities?

3. Practical changes in scholarship and teaching
What have other scholars done in their classes and scholarship?
How is it easier to teach undergraduates with e-resources? Is it easier to
do research with e-resources?

Please join us for this exciting discussion. More information about the
conference is available at http://www.lib.umich.edu/tcp/conference and
please contact tcpconf_at_umich.edu for further questions.
