CATH 92: Teaching With Computers: Experiences and Opportunities
 
15-17 December 1992
Manchester Metropolitan University
 
Following the success of last year's conference Computers and Teaching in the
Humanities 92 will be based around the theme 'Experiences and Opportunities'.
The conference will offer hands-on workshops, a software fair, and sessions
focussing on how computers have been introduced into teaching. Before the start
of the conference (i.e. the 14th and 15th of December) there will be additional
workshops for those with no previous experience of humanities computing.
 
In addition there is a HIDES authoring day to be run after the conference from
the afternoon of the 17th to the morning of the 18th. Details can be obtained
from Mrs B Hudson, HIDES Project, History Department, University of
Southampton, Southampton, SO9 5NH.
