Digital Media and Humanities Research: ACH/ALLC Conference,
New York City, June 13-17 2001

The joint conference of the Association for Computers and
the Humanities and the Association for Literary and
Linguistic Computing is the oldest established meeting of
scholars working at the intersection of advanced information
technologies and the humanities, annually attracting a
distinguished international community at the forefront of
their fields. The theme for the 2001 conference is "Digital
Media and Humanities Research", and it will feature plenary
addresses by two leading scholars: Johanna Drucker,
Robertson Professor in Media Studies at the University of
Virginia, and Alan Liu, Professor of English at the
University of California, Santa Barbara.

ACH/ALLC 2001 invites submissions of between 750 and 1500
words on any aspect of humanities computing or new media,
broadly defined to encompass the common ground between
information technology and problems in humanities research
and teaching. We especially encourage submissions from any
field which address the impact of new media on research
methods and intellectual practices. As always, we welcome
submissions in any area of the humanities, especially
interdisciplinary work. Other areas of interest include the
creation and use of digital resources, theoretical or
speculative treatments of new media, and the application to
humanities data of techniques developed in such fields as
information science and the physical sciences and

Successful proposals might focus on:

   * new approaches to research in humanities disciplines
     using digital resources dependent on images, audio, or

   * traditional applications of computing in the
     humanities, including (but not limited to) text
     encoding, hypertext, text corpora, computational
     lexicography, statistical models, and text analysis;

   * applications in the digital arts, especially projects
     and installations that feature technical advances of
     potential interest to humanities scholars;

   * information design in the humanities, including
     visualization, simulation, and modeling;

   * pedagogical applications of new media within the
     humanities; thoughtful considerations of the cultural
     impact of computing and new media;

   * the institutional role of humanities computing and new
     media within the contemporary academy, including
     curriculum development and collegial support for
     activities in these fields.

Financial assistance for some speakers will be available:
see the conference web page for details.  For the first time
the conference will also feature a workshop session on
academic and industry jobs in humanities computing and new
