                    COMPUTERS AND THE HUMANITIES

For over thirty years, Computers and the Humanities (CHum) has been the
premier international journal for publications on language, text, and
humanities-related research.

Starting with the publication of volume 31, CHum is taking on a new
look, with a new cover and format, together with a new editorial staff
representing areas across the variety of disciplines covered by the
journal. In addition to continuing to publish top-quality articles
covering all kinds of textual analysis, corpus studies, and language and
literary analysis, we are actively seeking to extend our scope to cover
the full range of materials which are available for research in
humanities disciplines, including images, sound, speech data, etc.

We invite the submission of high-quality articles describing research
concerning the creation, representation, and maintenance of text
resources and other media, as well as descriptions of methodologies and
results of research using such materials, including statistical and
symbolic methods, strategies for information storage and retrieval, etc.
In keeping with Chum's long tradition of fostering inter-disiplinary
work, we also encourage submission of articles involving multi-lingual
and/or multi-modal applications and research.

We extend a special invitation for articles which survey the current
state-of-the-art in any relevant area. Such articles should provide an
overview of past and recent work, an assessment of the current
achievements and directions for future research, and a full bibliography
which may serve as a reference for those interested in the field. For a
recent example, see "Current Approaches to Punctuation in Computational
Linguistics", B. Say and V. Akman, Chum 30:6 (1996).

In addition to publishing full-length research articles, CHum also
publishes a section on Reports and Discussion, which includes shorter
articles reporting on projects, intermediate results, or discussing
relevant issues. Contributions to this section are also solicited.

submission procedures, consult http://www.wkap.nl/

Subject:        Call for Actors

The VRML Dream project is currently looking for actors who are willing
to volunteer their services for a live 30 minute virtual reality
broadcast of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The goal of this
project is to broadcast a "live" production of the play over the
Internet using the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML).  This
standard allows anyone to create fully three dimensional, interactive
virtual spaces, integrate them with sound and/or video, and make them
available over the Internet.  The public performance is scheduled for 23
April 1998.

The entire project is being done by volunteers.  We are interested in
finding actors who would be interested in giving us some of their time
to be a part of this exciting theatrical experiment.  If you are
interested, we will need to know the following information:

1) Your availability for auditions and rehearsals
2) To what type computers do you have access
        - processor type (e.g. Pentium) and speed (e.g. 150 Mhz)
        - does your computer have MMX?
        - how much RAM does your computer have?
        - do you have Internet access?

Subject:        Washington Shakespeare Theatre

The 1998-99 brochure has arrived for those of us who are subscribers the
The Shakespeare Theatre in DC, listing the plays from which next year's
season will be chosen.  The company now performs three Shakespearean
plays and two others.  For next season, the Shakespeares will be chosen
from: Merchant of Venice, Two Gentlemen, Richard III, King John, and
Pericles.  The non-Shakespeares from: The Trojan Women, A Woman of No
Importance, Marlowe's Edward II, Sheridan's The Critic, and Wycherley's
The Country Wife.

With that lineup, any combination should make an interesting season!
Michael Kahn has shown a willingness to take risks on plays that are not
ordinarily performed, so far with great success (such as this year's
Peer Gynt). Those who would like more information can view the web site
at http://shakespearedc.org or call 202-547-1122.
