Beyond Gutenberg:
Hypertext and the Future of the Humanities

Conference Announcement

Where: Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut
When: Thursday-Friday May 12-13, 1994
Sponsor: Yale University Library

The emerging technology of hypermedia, which allows users to search and interact with text, graphics, audio, and video in one format, is expected to launch a fifteen-billion dollar publishing industry by 1995. Mainstream publishers are already establishing electronic publishing divisions in anticipation of the growth of the creation and use of hypertextual materials. Scholars in the humanities around the world are discussing the implications of electronic resources for their research and teaching.

In response to a broad range of practical and theoretical issues arising from hypertext, we have assembled a distinguished group of speakers to discuss the implications of hypermedia on scholarship, publishing, and authoring in the humanities.
