 Susan Hockey, formerly at Oxford University, recently became
director of the Center for Electronic Texts in the Humanities, a
new project formed by Rutgers and Princeton Universities with
funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
 She will describe plans for the development of the Center
during its initial stages, including the inventory of machine-
readable texts and the Center's role in archiving texts and
providing educational programs. The talk will also examine
some current issues in humanities computing which need to be
addressed for the long-term development of the center. There
will an opportunity for the audience to comment on the center's
objectives and priorities.
