Subject:  Geoffrey Chaucer (ca 1340/45-1400), the first
          great English poet and one of the wellsprings
          of the English language itself, is best known
          for the fragmentary `Canterbury Tales' and the
          epic romance `Troilus and Criseyde'.  It would be
          hard to find a writer who has more loyal,
          loving readers.
 
          In `The Legend of Good Women', Chaucer invites
          his readers to believe things that they have
          never seen with their own eyes, especially what
          old books reveal, because `yf that olde bokes
          were aweye, Yloren were of remembraunce the keye'.
 
          The papers at this conference show how
          computer technology assists in many fields
          within Chaucer studies: editing and textual
          criticism, thematic analysis, his use of English,
          his style, and his sources and influences.
 
          As old books are the key of remembrance to our
          past, so computers are proving themselves a
          key to a full understanding of the written
          memories in those books.
 
 
Sponsor:  The Centre for Computing in the Humanities was
          founded in 1986 within the Faculty of Arts and
          Science as a result of a co-operative agreement
          between the University of Toronto and IBM
          Canada Ltd.  Besides providing facilities and
          services to teachers, researchers and students
          in the humanities, CCH offers non-credit courses
          and workshops, sponsors conferences, and publishes
          a series of working papers on computer-assisted
          research, a series of electronic texts, and
          text-analysis software such as MTAS, STRAP and
          TACT.
 
Proceedings:
          CCH Working Papers is a series about
          computer-assisted research in textual studies.
