CATH '95 (Computers and Teaching in the Humanities)
ADVANCE NOTICE and CALL for PAPERS
The CATH '95 conference will be held at Royal Holloway, University of London,
Egham, Surrey, from 5th-7th September 1995.
The conference is organized by the Office for Humanities Communication and the
Computers in Teaching Initiative Centre for Textual Studies (both at the
University of Oxford), and the English Department, Royal Holloway.
The theme of this year's conference is Computers and the Changing Curriculum.
We would like to encourage proposals which include practical experiences of the
use of computers in teaching, and approaches taken by the teacher in
integrating computing into courses, describing problems as well as successes,
plus examples of student feedback. Experiences are sought from a wide mix of
humanities disciplines. Contemporary topics and new developments are always
welcome, for example, use of resources on the Internet.
Contributions are invited for individual formal papers (30 minutes inclusive of
10 minute question time), panel sessions comprising three related papers, or
workshops. Workshops should be about 2-hours in length and should involve
hands-on tuition as well as time for discussion; the level of experience aimed
at should be indicated (and may be from novice to more experienced).
For individual papers, please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words (500
for each paper in a panel session) no later than March 30th. This should
include a summary paragraph of the main points covered in your paper which will
be used in the programme to describe the session. For workshops, a descriptive
paragraph of aims and means will suffice. The proposals will be refereed by a
programme committee and all authors will be notified of the outcome by April
30th. We are also interested in proposals for other forms of presentation such
as poster sessions, and demonstrations at the software fair.
Further information including a draft programme and costs is expected to be
available in May. All participants at the CATH '94 conference will be sent
