Subject:        "Beyond the Book": One-day conference, Oxford
        Beyond the Book: Text in the World of Electronic Communication
                Friday 17 February 1995
                Oxford University
                A One-Day Conference Co-Sponsored by the CTI Centre for
                Textual Studies and Office for Humanities Communication,
                Oxford University and the Centre for English Studies
                University of London
The aim of this conference is to address some of the issues around books and
electronic publishing in an era when hypermedia and Internet communications are
becoming increasingly important and popular.  The presenters are all working in
literary or cultural studies and are all interested in the changes brought
about in teaching, scholarship, and culture by the new modes of publication and
communication in electronic form.  They include Kathryn Sutherland, Professor
of English at Nottingham University and Director of Project Electra, a major
electronic resource of women's writings and images of women; George Landow,
Professor of English and Art History at Brown University, and an author of
several key works on hypertext, literary theory, and humanities computing;
Sadie Plant, Lecturer in Cultural Studies at the University of Birmingham, and
a controvertial, newsworthy cyberfeminist. There will be plenty of time for
discussion, and we anticipate an exciting and lively day.
