Hello.    Those interested are invited to review and comment on this
draft Manifesto, developed by the two faculty who are leading the Mellon
Seminars in Digital Humanities, Todd Presner (UCLA) and Jeffrey Schnapp
(Stanford).  Apologies for any duplication.

Subject: Digital Humanities Manifesto Blog


The Digital Humanities Manifesto that we have been discussing in the
Mellon Seminar has now been published on our WordPress blog at
manifesto/, and is now open and ready for comments. This software allows
you to comment on each paragraph in the manifesto, so you will be able
to focus your comments on the appropriate section--for example, to add
new departments to the new departments for the Humanities Division
section. To join the blog, click on one of the links in the "comments
overview" window in the middle of the screen, and then click on "Create
an Account."

We look forward to your comments and suggestions on all aspects of the
manifesto. This is intended to be, as Todd and Jeffrey have said, a
collaboratively-authored document, so our joint authorship is an
integral part of the process.
