Dear Humanist:

We write about an opportunity, a summer class during which you would learn
how to make your digital project state-of-the-art so that it can pass peer
review by the Networked Infrastructure for Nineteenth-century Electronic
Scholarship (NINES; http://www.nines.org), 18thConnect
(http://www.18thConnect.org), or the Medieval Electronic Scholarly
Association (MESA; http://www.mesa-medieval.org).  We will teach also,
technically, how to submit your metadata to NINES and/or 18thConnect or MESA
once your project has been accepted. Scholarships are being offered for this
class which is not yet full at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute: go
to http://www.dhsi.org and register for number 27.

Projects accepted at any one of the nodes (18thConnect or NINES) are also
accepted at the others, and the metadata you submit makes your project
findable through them all. People interested in creating groups like NINES,
18thConnect, and MESA are also encouraged to apply. We hope you will join us
this coming summer.

Best, 
Laura Mandell of NINES/18thConnect, on behalf of Timothy Stinson and
Dot Porter of MESA.
