Hiya. I must apologize: the announcement was not intended to be posted 
on the Humanist Discussion Group. The text was an e-mail that was sent 
to previous and current IATH Fellows, rather than the larger DH 
community. The call for proposal notice is for the IATH Resident Fellows 
program, which is for humanities faculty at the University of Virginia.

That said, IATH collaborates regularly with other institutions and with 
DHers outside of UVA, but that work is funded by outside grant moneys. 
The only financial support that we can offer is the Resident Fellows 

I'm sorry for the confusion over this! Any questions about our 
Fellowship program can be sent to me (sarah at virginia.edu) or to Daniel 
Pitti (dpitti at virginia.edu).

Sincerely yours,
Sarah Wells
IATH Scholarly and Technical Communications Officer

O proud left foot, that ventures quick within
Then soon upon a backward journey lithe.
Anon, once more the gesture, then begin:
Command sinistral pedestal to writhe.
Commence thou then the fervid Hokey-Poke,
A mad gyration, hips in wanton swirl.
To spin! A wilde release from Heavens yoke.
Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.
The Hoke, the poke -- banish now thy doubt
Verily, I say, 'tis what it's all about.

Willard and HUMANIST:

Please excuse my posting, inadvertantly, a message intended for
private consumption. (I am sure my friends will forgive me.)

My apologies to IATH for posting of an internal announcement. Years ago 
I was put on the internal mailing list for reasons possibly no one can 
remember. Since then I've distributed IATH announcements with the 
intention of informing everyone here about the interesting activities at 
that famous and important centre in the digital humanities. I've asked 
to be removed from the internal list but kept on the one intended for 
the world, so the problem should not recur.

Perhaps someday soon (I think it may be quite soon) there will be so 
much going on that I'll have to stop distributing such notes and 
announcements, but until then they will continue to appear. Some will 
remember when those of us involved in this field were so few and so 
little was available that any news at all was eagerly passed around by 
whatever means whatever (and often with little attention to quality of 
spelling, grammar, formatting etc). Those who have read the early 
numbers of Computers and the Humanities and the Bulletin of the ALLC 
will have experienced the sense of discovery, akin to walking 
unsuspecting into a surprise birthday party, of a whole world of 
activity, going on for years across all the disciplines, suddenly 
appearing. Now it's such a simple thing, so commonplace as to be 
annoying, as when you go out of contact for a few days, then return to 
500 e-mails. And in the disciplinary, theoretical sense what's to think 
about? Only, I suppose, how almost invisibly something quite simple has 
changed everything, made the rare into the everyday and shifted our 
attention -- to what?
