Hi All,

We are very pleased to announce

The Stones of Ancient Latium - 2011 Latium Vetus Program: Epigraphy and 
Archaeology Program in Italy (May 25 - July 1, 2011)
The 2011 Latium Vetus Program, as part of a collaborative project 
between Tufts University and Roma Tor Vergata, will allow students to 
learn the techniques of modern epigraphic study, including digital 
transcription and documentation of inscriptions, and they will have the 
unique opportunity to work on unpublished texts from the huge corpus of 
inscriptions of Ancient Latium and to contribute to the ongoing project 
of digitizing and publishing these inscriptions.

As an intensive course of first-hand epigraphic and archaeological site 
and museum study based at the campus of Tor Vergata University and led 
by Monica Berti of Roma Tor Vergata and J. Matthew Harrington of Tufts 
University, this program will combine close study of epigraphic remains 
with exploration of the archaeological contexts and analysis of relevant 
Latin sources from the sites of Latium and Campania: Rome, Ostia, 
Pompeii, Tivoli, Praeneste, Veii, Lanuvium, Albano Laziale, Cerveteri, 
Herculaneum, Nemi, Anzio, Tusculum, Falerii Novi, Sutri, Tarquinia, 
Napoli, Paestum, Lucus Feroniae, Boscoreale, Oplontis, and more.

Join us for this exciting summer program!

Application deadline: March 1, 2011

        Subject: International Symposium on XML Document Interchange: Call for Participation 


CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
International Symposium on 
XML Document Interchange: Fact or Fiction
                or
"That XML file you sent me: what do you expect me to do with it?"

Since the dawn of markup languages, XML and its precursors have been sold as enabling document interchange. Does it work? Do we have document interchange? We send each other "documents" and pull documents out of the Cloud all the time. A lot of those documents are HTML and PDF, some are XML. Does XML really support document interchange?

Questions that motivate the symposium include: What are minimum requirements for interchange, and what must sender and recipient do to foster success? Are there levels of interchange? Can interchange be done "blind" without negotiation on both ends? How can quality of service be defined and measured, and what methods aid in graceful degradation of service? How does interchange differ from long-term sustainability of documents and document collections? How do we balance semantic interchange with fidelity to an original? What challenges are users having interchanging XML documents, and how are they overcoming them?

This one-day symposium will bring together researchers, government analysts, documentation specialists, consumers of documents, and XML practitioners to discuss the problems and challenges of document interchange. What is being done now and what more we can do?

Dear Mr. McCarty,

Greetings. I am writing on behalf of Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC). Located in downtown Asheville, NC, BMCM+AC preserves and continues the unique legacy of educational and artistic innovation of Black Mountain College for public study and enjoyment. We achieve our mission through collection, conservation, and educational activities including exhibitions, publications and public programs.

This summer, we are excited to offer two NEH Landmarks Workshops for Community College Faculty. The workshops, entitled Black Mountain College: An Artistic and Educational Legacy, will take place on July 10-16 and July 17-23, 2011, and will address the fascinating history of Black Mountain College through presentations by experts in the field as well as experiential workshops and field trips all designed to deepen and enrich the study of this innovative educational model.

Attached to this message, please find a one-page PDF flyer for the workshop. We would be most grateful if if you could share this opportunity with the HUMANIST listserv, as well as any students, colleagues or institutions to whom you think it might be of interest.
