Dear all;

I am student of Electronic Communication and Publishing at SLAIS
[School of Library and Information Science, University College
London], working on my master's dissertation, my research interest is
Humanities Computing. I aim to reach an understanding of the subject;
its principles and its applications by studying its history, not in a
traditional chronological way but identifying the highlights that are
being the foundation of the discipline.

I would like to hear your opinion on "what", "which" and most
importantly "why" are the top five (or more) events that are making
Humanities Computing history.  What do you consider to be the most
significant events or highlights, and are there some that are not as
well known in the field, but ought to be?

Please email your opinions to with
"Humanities Computing" in the subject line.

Kind regards,
Leticia Keogh
