Humanist Archives Now Upweb

Browsable, Searchable Hypertext Resource

The archives of Humanist, going back to 1987, are now available via the Web as browsable and searchable hypertext, from the Humanist home pages: http://www.princeton.edu/~mccarty/humanist/ and http://www.kcl.ac.uk/humanities/cch/humanist/.

Humanist is an international electronic seminar on the application of computers to the humanities. Its primary aim is to provide a forum for discussion of intellectual, scholarly, pedagogical and social issues, and for exchange of information among members.

Humanist is allied with the Association for Computers and the Humanities and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing. It is an affiliated publication of the American Council of Learned Societies and a publication of the Office for Humanities Communication (UK).

The archives themselves are housed at the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities, constructed and updated using hypermail (free Unix software is available from http://www.eit.com), and indexed for searching with Excite. Humanist's members—readers of Kairos can learn how to subscribe through the homesite address above—are encouraged to experiment with the search function, where they will find a wealth of accumulated wisdom and maybe some amusing anachronisms too.
