A one-day colloquium hosted by the CTI Centre for Textual Studies

28th June
Oxford University

As you may already know, the CTI Centre for Textual Studies
(http://info.ox.ac.uk/ctitext/) finally closes at the end of June,
before handing over to the LTSN English Centre. However, we are planning
one final event, to be held on Wednesday 28th June in the Oxford
University Computing Laboratory.  This will take the form of a whole-day
conference looking at the use of computers in the teaching of English
literature, including methodologies, insights into particular projects
and new initiatives, and an exploration of how effective the IT side has
been in the teaching process.

The programme for the day will include:

* Keynote address by Robert Clark, University of East Anglia: 'Mewling
and Puking: First Steps towards the Literary Internet'

Dr Clark is a Senior Lecturer in English Literature; Editorial Director
of the Annotated Bibliography of English Studies; founding member of
both the Council for University English and the European Society for the
Study of English; and Chairman of the Humanities Hub Advisory Committee.

* Rob Watt, University of Dundee. Mr Watt is a Senior Lecturer
concentrating on Renaissance literature, and poetry from the late
Victorian period to the present. He is also the creator of The Web
Concordances (http://www.dundee.ac.uk/english/wics/wics.htm)

* Sue Thomas, Artistic Director of the trAce On-line Writing Community,
project at Nottingham Trent University (http://trace.ntu.ac.uk).

* Paul Cavill, University of Nottingham. Lecturer in Medieval English;
co-editor of 'Caedmon's Hymn' (a Hypertext Programme for Beginner's in
Old English).

* Harry Dodds, Head of English, Gosford Hill School, Kidlington. Mr

Level, i.e. how prepared new undergraduates will be for using computers
at HE level.

University. Project Manager for the Virtual Seminars for Teaching
