             Eric Johnson <JohnsonE at columbia.dsu.edu>
TOPICS:  Submissions of articles are invited that focus on any
aspect of computer programming for the humanities -- including
articles on topics such as the following:
     Programming methodologies and software design principles
     used to create computer programs in the humanities;
          In particular, description of facets of humanities
          programming which distinguish it from other kinds of
     An overview (or projection of the future) of programming for
     the humanities using
          C and C++
          SNOBOL4 and SPITBOL
          other computer languages
     Descriptions of actual programming experiences (recently
     finished or in progress) which raise significant questions
     and problems.
     Description of a specific programming application (or a type
     of application) for the humanities -- including the visual
     arts, drama, history, and music as well as literature and
In addition to technical papers, general discussion or opinion
papers are invited on topics that grapple with questions such as
the following:
     Do humanists who create computer programs do so in ways
     different from computer scientists?  Do they more (or less)
     readily grasp an overview of a computing problem and see the
     general framework of a solution?  Do they write computer
     code differently?  Do they prefer particular computer
     Occasionally those with humanities educations and solid
     academic positions in the humanities assume positions
     normally held only by those with degrees in computer
     science.  How is that possible?  Do those with educations in
     computer science ever assume positions in the humanities?
LENGTH:  Articles of any length will be considered.  It is
expected that articles will range from 2,500 to 12,000 words --
except for opinion articles or overview articles which might be
