About the Book: 

In recent years, the application of computing technology to the arts and humanities has been a topic of increased focus in the post-secondary environment. With growing understanding of how these applications can serve the ongoing mission of humanities research, teaching, and training, technology is playing a larger role than ever before in these disciplines. Arising in part from a joint venture between the Consortium for Computers in the Humanities / Consortium pour ordinateurs en sciences humaines (COCH/COSH; now SDH/SEMI, the Society for Digital Humanities / Société pour l'étude des médias interactifs) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Mind Technologies is the first volume to broadly document the internationally significant work of the Canadian academic community in the area of humanities computing.
