The NINES steering committee is pleased to announce a new informational


NINES is a group of distinguished scholars and humanities computing
experts engaged in building a "networked interface for
nineteenth-century electronic scholarship."  This interface is to be an
online research and publishing environment for integrated,
peer-reviewed editorial and critical work in nineteenth-century
studies, both British and American.  NINES aims to address the crisis
in humanities publishing and to move the rethinking of literary and
cultural studies -- in method as well as theory -- by establishing an
institutionalized mechanism for new kinds of digital-based analytic and
interpretive practices.

The website (at ) lists scholars serving on our
Romantic, Victorian, and Americanist editorial boards, describes
exciting analytical and pedagogical tools under construction, and
offers a reading list and full description of the NINES project.

The site also contains information about our planned summer workshops
in electronic editing (for which successful applicants will receive
fellowship funding) and presents guidelines for potential NINES

We invite conversation and participation, and hope you will join us in
our grassroots effort to shape humanities publication and
computer-assisted scholarship.

On behalf of the NINES steering committee,

Bethany Nowviskie
