============================
Target Audience and the Aim of the Workshop

Computers are coming to play a steadily more prominent role in the  
various fields of modern scholarship, including literature,  
linguistics, cultural studies, history, and religious studies. The  
goal of this workshop is to raise awareness of how we can apply  
digital technologies in humanities studies. Lectures by invited  
speakers will provide a general introduction to the state of the art  
in digital humanities as well as excellent examples of computer- 
assisted text analysis and creation and management of humanities  
digital resources. Hands-on workshop exercises will provide an  
opportunity for participants to acquire practical skills by trying out  
some of the resources and techniques demonstrated in the lectures.  
Discussion sessions will be held to complement the lectures and  
workshops, through which participants will have a chance to receive  
expert advice on how to initiate and develop their own projects.

Invited speakers include:
A. Charles Muller (University of Tokyo)
Kiyonori Nagasaki (Yamaguchi Prefectural University)
Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen (University of Oulu, Finland)
Espen Ore (National Library of Norway)
Tomoji Tabata (University of Osaka)
