University of Calgary Press, 2006 - Computers - 317 pages
In recent years, the application of computing technology to the arts and humanities has been a topic of increased focus in the post-secondary environment. With growing understanding of how these applications can serve the ongoing mission of humanities research, teaching, and training, technology is playing a larger role than ever before in these disciplines. Arising in part from a joint venture between the Consortium for Computers in the Humanities / Consortium pour ordinateurs en sciences humaines (COCH/COSH; now SDH/SEMI, the Society for Digital Humanities / Societe pour l'etude des medias interactifs) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Mind Technologies: Humanities Computing and the Canadian Academic Community is the first volume to broadly document the internationally significant work of the Canadian academic community in the area of humanities computing.
