The deadline for submitting proposals for papers, panels or sessions for the Meeting was January 15, 1996.
After fourteen months of faithful service to the Society, C. ELIZABETH PROPES (of Naperville, Illinois), who very competently implemented the Society's linking up with the Internet and acquisition of e-mail facilities, graduated in May from the University of Mississippi with a B.A. (Summa Cum Laude) in History. For next fall she has been awarded a graduate assistantship at the University of Illinois where she will be studying Russian history. Her successor as part-time clerk/typist in the ASLH office and editorial assistant for the NEWSLETTER is MARTHA E. HUTCHINSON (of Gallatin, Tennessee) who is now a junior majoring in English and minoring in French. A Student Senator in the University's Honors Program, Martha also moonlights for a few hours each week as an editorial intern at the offices of the OXFORD AMERICAN, a bimonthly Southern literary magazine published by lawyer/author John Grisham.
Finally, as of July 1, the ASLH office is no longer traveling the Information Superhighway in a 1960's model vehicle.
The University of Mississippi History Department has kindly provided us with a desktop PC that not only has WordPerfect 6.0 capacity but also "Windows" and a set of "Internet Tools" that include "Netscape" and "Eudora."
As was done previously in 1989 and again in 1992, an ASLH MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY was mailed out to all members in May-June of this year. The Directory was printed directly off of the computerized membership database as of January 1st. Every member of the Society should have received their copy by now. Inevitably, some errors and omissions occurred. A list of "errata" and addenda will be mailed out with the Annual Meeting information later this summer.
We will soon be mailing out a list of FAX numbers and/or email addresses to all members of the Society who returned the tear-out questionnaire included in the Winter /95 issue of the NEWSLETTER.
The Society owes a special "thank you" to its members who contributed to the Joseph H. Smith Memorial Publication Fund and the Donald Sutherland Memorial Prize Fund. Their names, as of July 13, 1994, are:

New Journal on Online Law
On June 19 Editor TROTTER HARDY announced on the H-Law net the launching of a new electronic periodical entitled the Journal of Online Law. The contents of the first issue included: M. Ethan Katsh:
"Cybertime, Cyberspace and Cyberlaw" Mark A. Lemley: "Rights of Attribution and Integrity
in Online Communications"
David G. Post: "Anarchy, State, and the Internet:
An Essay on Law-Making in Cyberspace"
- Michael Froomkin: "Anonymity and its Enmities"According to Editor Hardy:
"The idea of JOL is to publish essays about the new issues of law and online communications--law and cyberspace. This is not the place for detailed review of particular court decisions, or for advice on specific situations; it is not the place for a lengthy analysis of a particular issue either. Countless publications like newsletters, law firm practice updates, and law reviews provide outlets for those different and worthy endeavors.
The Journal of Online Law is rather aimed at concisely framing and exploring the key legal issues arising from networked communication; at speculating a bit about future trends; and in general, at trying to bring interested readers some interesting reading about the law of cyberspace."
The Journal's Advisory Board includes:
- THOMAS R. BRUCE, Co-Director, Legal Information Institute Research Associate, Cornell Law School
- DAVID R. JOHNSON, Chairman, Lexis Counsel Connect Chairman, Electronic Frontier Foundation
- M. ETHAN KATSH, Professor of Legal Studies, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
- PETER W. MARTIN, Jane M.G. Foster Professor of Law and Co-Director, Legal Information Institute Cornell Law School
- HENRY H. PERRITT, JR., Professor of Law, Villanova University School of Law
- DAVID G. POST, Visiting Associate Professor of Law, Georgetown University Law Center
- JEFFREY RITTER, Program Director, Eclips, Ohio Supercomputer Center
E-mail subscriptions: You can have a plain ASCII version of JOL sent directly to your e-mail address. Subscriptions are handled by a "listserv" distribution list. The e-mail address for subscription requests is:

Electronic Public Information Newsletter
VOL. 5, NO. 10; May 19, 1995 includes the following:
- FORRESTER'S QUEST FOR A FOR PUBLIC DATABASE OF FEDERAL CASELAW: U.S. District Court Judge J. Owen Forrester (Atlanta) is conducting an informal, personal campaign to try and convince the eleven federal Circuit Courts to make their opinions available at electronic archives for free public access. Forrester believes that several archives would be established at universities in various parts of the country. At the same time, he made it clear that he is not engaged in any effort to create a public domain legal citation system, and that he has no formal or informal relationship on this matter with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). He denied even knowing DOJ Official Paul Friedman, who had been linked to the Forrester effort by press reports. He stressed that his efforts are personal, and that he will probably not try to involve the U.S. Judicial Conference.
- NPR SPONSORS FEDERAL EFFORT TO CENTRALIZE INFORMATION: The National Performance Review (NPR) is sponsoring a multi-agency government effort headed by the U.S. Postal Service to bring electronic government services to the American people. Designated WINGS (Web Interactive Network of Government Services), the effort aims to deliver integrated government services to the public via a variety of systems, i.e., kiosks, the Internet, private online services, and through interactive cable television. WINGS is an outgrowth of the work of the Interagency Kiosk Committee, which has just completed the study, The Kiosk Network Solution: An Electronic Gateway to Government Services, for the Consumer Service Improvement Team of the Government Information Technology Services Working Group, a subgroup of the Information Infrastructure Task Force (IITF).
- WHITE HOUSE WEB LEADS LIBRARY OF CONGRESS' THOMAS IN USAGE: The Welcome to the White House web at mid-May was averaging 133,615 daily transactions as compared to approximately 33,000 daily transactions for THOMAS, the congressional online service run by the Library of Congress. Since the White House web went online on Oct. 20 until this week, the system has processed 27.2 million transactions. THOMAS since coming online on January 5 through May 6 has processed 3.7 million transactions. Other popular federal government web homepages include FedWorld at the National Technical Information Services, NASA, and Treasury Department.

News From ACLS
The Mellon Foundation has just awarded $100,000 for creation of an "American Arts and Letters Network." This will be a webpage that draws together all the electronic resources in the arts and humanities. The American Council of Learned Societies is a co-sponsor of this along with CNI and Vassar College; it will be mounted at Vassar.
The Getty Art History Information Project is currently running an electronic discussion on research agendas in arts and humanities computing. They've commissioned eight papers, have made these available electronically, and are moderating a discussion that reacts to these papers. If you want to participate, send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The ACLS-SSRC Joint Area Committees
A Statement by the ACLS Board May, 1995:
"For more than four decades, the joint area committees of the ACLS and SSRC have played critical roles in helping scholars to attain deep understanding of critical languages and cultures outside the United States, in focusing research on significant issues and topics, and in developing the scholarly infrastructure required to support foreign area research."
"The joint committees are unique in their ability to play these roles. They have gathered together respected and diverse groups of scholars to give continuing attention to the purposes and requirements of foreign area scholarship. By keeping a broad, national and increasingly international focus on education and training needs, research agendas, and infrastructure requirements of foreign area scholarship, they have facilitated the deployment and redirection of both intellectual and financial resources to address new needs and challenges."
"In underscoring their importance over several decades, we also note that their contributions have changed over the course of their existence. In their earlier years, for example, they nurtured the development of area studies as fields of scholarly inquiry and encouraged the creation of area studies organizations. More recently, they have begun to attend to the training of scholars and the development of scholarly infrastructure outside the United States, particularly in areas with less well-developed systems of higher education, and have promoted collaboration between U.S.-based scholars and those abroad."
"Continued sponsorship of these joint committees is a preeminent priority of the American Council of Learned Societies.
In discussions with the Social Science Research Council and with potential funders for the joint committees, we believe consideration should be given to the following:
- Preparation of scholars grounded in language and culture. The education and training of successive cohorts of scholars with significant understanding of the language(s) and culture(s) they are studying are particularly urgent now that the federal government is decreasing its support of exchange and research programs, and many U.S. universities are eliminating programs and reducing the number of languages in which they offer instruction.
- Purposes of research. The joint committees should focus both on research directed toward issues of manifest public importance and on more basic long-term research. Policy-relevant research possesses clear immediate relevance, but basic research lays the foundation for issue-specific inquiry and sets a context for understanding new developments.
- Integration of perspectives. We believe this to be an unusually fruitful time for nurturing scholarship which integrates perspectives from the humanities and the social sciences. The formation of new interdisciplinary fields such as cultural studies and the emergence of interest in questions of identity, religion and nationalism are just two indications of this. There are unusual opportunities, too, to draw in perspectives from the natural sciences, on issues such as climate, nutrition, environment, and population. The "dual mandate" (areas studies and comparative and transnational approaches) has been a valuable initiative of the past few years, and we have not begun to exhaust the possibilities of implementing it.
The area studies fields have changed and matured a great deal over the past decade. It is now more essential than ever to have scholarship which is firmly grounded in an understanding of language and culture, sophisticated in its use of methods and perspectives from one or more disciplines, and attentive to how research in one area of the world may have manifest significance in comparative or global terms. In terms of research planning, it is scholarship with these characteristics--a three-legged stool--that the joint committees should nurture. We believe that an array of geographically- organized committees, each focusing on a major culture area of the world, will be most successful at nurturing such integrative scholarship.
- Scholarly communication and library resources. The efforts of the joint committees have contributed to the development of communities of scholars in a number of countries. The challenge now is to improve the procedures for regular interchange among scholars separated by considerable distance. If properly deployed, the new electronic technology may facilitate this. The joint committees may also be in a position to foster distributed and collaborative strategies for making library resources available in electronically networked formats for the benefit of scholars both in the United States and abroad.
- Committee appointments. Those appointed to serve on joint committees should have both significant understanding of at least one foreign language and culture, and also a significant grounding in a discipline. We urge appointment of scholars from a wider array of fields in the humanities and humanistic social sciences, and we believe foreign scholars should be represented on all of the joint committees.
- Administration and Budget. We understand from SSRC that the joint committees in recent years have faced deficits in their operating budgets. This will need to be addressed in setting a course for the future, but any administrative or budgetary rearrangements should proceed from a clear understanding of the purposes and functions we want the joint committees to serve. Some administrative savings may be possible in creating a more unified process for handling fellowship applications and awards.
- Oversight by the two Councils. The intellectual vitality, legitimacy and influence of the joint committees depend on their joint sponsorship and coordinated administration by the ACLS and the SSRC. The creation of the Joint Advisory Committee on International Programs (JACIP) has improved the quality of joint oversight by the two Councils. Its purview over appointments to the committees should be strengthened. We should also explore ways to strengthen further the processes (staff and committee) for jointly setting intellectual directions and exercising administrative oversight."

Section V: MONEY AVAILABLE
Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars Fellowships
Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., the Center awards approximately 35 residential fellowships each year for advanced research in the humanities and social sciences. Men and women from any country and from a wide variety of backgrounds (including government, the corporate world, the professions, and academe) may apply. Applicants must hold a doctorate or have equivalent professional accomplishments. Fellows are provided offices, access to the Library of Congress, computers or manuscript typing services, and research assistants. The Center publishes selected works written at the Center through the Woodrow Wilson Center Press. Fellowships are normally for an academic year. In determining stipends, the Center follows the principle of no gain/no loss in terms of a Fellow's previous year's salary. However, in no case can the Center's stipend exceed $61,000. Travel expenses for Fellows and their immediate dependents are provided.
The application deadline is October 1, 1995. For application materials write to: Fellowships Office, Woodrow Wilson Venter, 1000 Jefferson Drive S.W., SI MRC, Washington, D.C. 20560. Tel: 202-357-2841.
Spencer Dissertation Fellowships
The Spencer Foundation was established by Lyle M. Spencer, founder and president of Science Research Associates, Inc. (SRA).
Because Mr. Spencer's wealth derived largely from SRA's success in publishing educational materials, he wished the Spencer Foundation to dedicate its resources to "investigating ways in which education can be improved, around the world." To achieve this goal, the Spencer Foundation supports research that gives promise of yielding new knowledge about education, in any of its many forms, in the United States and abroad. The Foundation assists studies with a wide variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to this end.
In its Dissertation Fellowships, the Spencer Foundation seeks to encourage a new generation of scholars from a variety of fields to undertake research relevant to the improvement of education. The Foundation believes that scholarly insight from many different disciplines can contribute to an understanding of education as a fundamental human endeavor and advance our ability to address significant current issues in education. Therefore, the Spencer Dissertation Fellowships support individuals whose dissertations show potential for bringing fresh and constructive perspectives to the history, theory, or practice of formal or informal education anywhere in the world.
Applicants must be candidates for the doctoral degree at a graduate school in the United States; however, applicants need not be citizens of the United States. These fellowships are not intended to finance data collection or completion of doctoral course work, but rather to support the final analysis of the research topic and the writing of the dissertation. For this reason, applicants must document that they will have completed all pre-dissertation requirements by June 1, 1996, and must provide a clear and specific plan for completing the dissertation within a two-year time frame.
Although the dissertation topic must concern education, graduate study may be in any academic discipline. In the past, fellowships have been awarded to candidates in anthropology, architecture, art history, economics, education, history, linguistics, literature, philosophy, political science, public health, psychology, religion and sociology, but eligibility is not restricted to these fields. Candidates should be interested in pursuing further research in education once the doctorate is attained. Successful applicants have had dissertation topics as diverse as parent and teacher activism in the postwar struggle for school desegregation in New York City; the determinants of educational inequality in contemporary Kenya; gang affiliation, Chicana/Mexicana identity and language use; building mathematics through conversation; and developing narrative structure: a cross-cultural analysis.
Applications must be submitted on forms printed by the Foundation. These forms may be requested from:
Spencer Dissertation Fellowships Program, Catherine A. Lacey, Program Officer, The Spencer Foundation, 900 North Michigan Avenue - Suite 2800, Chicago, IL 60611-1542, tel:(312) 337-7000.
Supporting documents include a current graduate school transcript, letters of reference, a brief personal statement, a dissertation abstract, and a narrative discussion of and workplan for the dissertation not to exceed eight double-spaced pages that are either typed or produced on a letter quality printer.
Approximately 30 non-renewable fellowships will be awarded. Recipients of the fellowships will receive $17,000 to support completion of the dissertation. This amount must be expended within a time limit of two years and in accordance with the work plan provided by a candidate in the application. Fellows may not accept employment other than described (if any) in the application nor may they accept other awards providing duplicate benefits without the written permission of the Program Officer.
Requests for required application forms must be received by October 13, 1995. Completed applications must be postmarked by October 25, 1995. Notification of awards will be in April, 1996.
Tenure of awards may begin no earlier than June 1, 1996.

National Humanities Center Fellowships 1996-97
The National Humanities Center supports advanced study in history, languages and literature, philosophy, and other fields of the humanities. Each year the Center awards residential fellowships to scholars of demonstrated achievement and to promising younger scholars. Applicants must hold doctorate or have equivalent professional accomplishments. Younger scholars should be engaged in work significantly beyond the revision of a doctoral dissertation. Most fellowships are for the academic year (September through May), though a few may be awarded for the fall or spring semester. Scholars from any nation may apply for fellowships. In addition to scholars from fields normally associated with the humanities, representatives of the natural and social sciences, the arts, the professions, and public life may be admitted to the Center if their work has humanistic dimensions.
Funding for fellowships at the Center derives from private foundation grants, income from the Center's endowment, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Deadline and Application Procedures:
For application material write to:
Fellowship Program, National Humanities Center, Post Office Box 12256, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709-2256.

Aspen Institute Nonprofit Sector Research Grants
The Nonprofit Sector Research Fund makes grants for research on a wide range of nonprofit issues, but focuses on important topics that have received limited attention. A variety of disciplines and research methodologies are supported, including basic data development. Collaborative studies that link researchers and nonprofit agencies are encouraged, as are studies that address the diversity of organizations and populations involved in the sector. Of primary interest to the Fund are studies with broad, sector-wide implications that address major issues and have the potential to inform public policy and benefit nonprofit practices.
In addition to supporting scholars who are already working in this field, the Fund encourages applications from scholars new to the field, practitioners, scholars from disciplines not well represented to date (psychology, political science, and anthropology, for example), doctoral candidates, women, and minorities.
The Nonprofit Sector Research Fund is particularly interested in studies that investigate basic propositions about the role and value of nonprofits and the tradition of philanthropy both in the United States and in other countries. The Fund invites comparisons among sectors and cultures as well as regional analysis of these issues. Although priority will be given to research that addresses questions in the Fund's areas of interest, applications on other topics will be considered. The Fund also operates grantmaking programs in California and Michigan. In addition to encouraging proposals in the areas of interest outlined in its national program guidelines, the Fund is interested in research addressing financial and human resources, technology, the economic impact of nonprofits, and other issues affecting the sector in these states.
An important component of the Michigan Program is the W.K. Kellogg Nonprofit Research Fellowship, which is open to doctoral students conducting research on the Michigan nonprofit sector. Proposals are accepted from students in any academic discipline at any institution, but preference is given to students attending Michigan universities.
Deadlines: There are two research grant cycles per year. Research proposals for both the national and regional programs must be postmarked by January 1, for the first cycle with notification in June, or by June 1 for the second cycle, with notification in December.
Applications for the W.K. Kellogg Nonprofit Research Fellowship are due April 15, and applications for the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Scholarship for Minority Students are due April 7.
Detailed guidelines and application forms are available for each of the research, fellowship and scholarship programs. For further information, contact: David Williams, Program Coordinator, Nonprofit Sector Research Fund, The Aspen Institute, 1333 New Hampshire Ave., Suite 1070, Washington D.C. 20036.

ACLS Fellowship and Grant Programs
(Please note that summer fellowships and research expense grants are not available.)
Deadline: October 2, 1995
Amount: $20,000 maximum
Period: 6-12 months to be initiated between July 1, 1996 and
February 1, 1997
The Fellowship Program of the American Council of Learned Societies supports postdoctoral research in all disciplines of the humanities and the humanities-related social sciences.
The ACLS Fellowships do not exceed $20,000 and are intended as salary replacement to help scholars devote six to twelve continuous months to full-time research and writing. Tenure of the grant may begin no earlier than July 1, 1996 and no later than February 1, 1997.
The ACLS Fellowship may be held concurrently with other fellowships and grants and any sabbatical pay, up to an amount equal to the candidate's current academic year salary. Under no circumstances, however, may both an ACLS Fellowship and an ACLS/CCK or ACLS/SSRC Joint Area Studies award be accepted if offered in the same competition year.
This program is supported in part by endowment grants received from the Ford Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Rockefeller Foundation. Requests for application forms must be received by September 29, 1995. Completed application forms must be postmarked no later than October 2, 1995. Decisions will be announced in mid-March 1996.
Grants for Travel to International Meetings Abroad
Deadline: February 1, 1996
Period: For meetings June 1, 1996 to June 1, 1997
The ACLS, in cooperation with its constituent societies, administers a program of travel grants, awarded on a competitive basis, to assist scholars in all fields of the humanities and humanities-related social sciences to participate in international meetings held outside the United States and its dependencies. This program is funded by the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation. Applicants must hold the Ph.D. or terminal degree in their field, must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States, and must be scheduled to read a paper or to have some other major, official role in the meeting. Preference will be given to individuals reading scholarly papers over those performing other administrative roles.
The grants are $500, and are meant to offset air travel from and return to the United States and other essential expenses of attendance, such as registration fee, food and lodging. Requests for application forms must be made by individuals on their own behalf, and must be received by January 29th. Completed applications must be postmarked no later than February 1, 1996. Decisions will be announced in mid-April, 1996.
Fellowships are also available for doctoral and postdoctoral research work in various areas of the world. November 1, 1995 is the deadline for almost all of them. For further information, contact the ACLS office at 228 East 45th St., New York, NY 10017-3398.
Programs Administered by Related Organizations
Council for International Exchange of Scholars
The Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), an affiliate of the ACLS, administers the Fulbright Scholar Program for research and university lecturing abroad in cooperation with the United States Information Agency (USIA). The awards for 1996-97 include about 1,000 grants in research and university lecturing for periods ranging from two months to a full academic year. There are openings in over 135 countries and, in many regions, the opportunity exists for multi-country research. Fulbright awards are granted in virtually all disciplines, and scholars in all academic ranks are eligible to apply. Applications are accepted from retired faculty and independent scholars.
The basic eligibility requirements for a Fulbright award are U.S. citizenship, Ph.D. or comparable professional qualifications, university or college teaching experience for lecturing assignments, and, for selected countries, proficiency in a foreign language. There is no limit on the number of Fulbright grants a single scholar can hold, but there must be a three-year interval between awards.
AAS 1996-1997 RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS
WORCESTER, MA, June 30, 1995--The American Antiquarian Society (AAS), in order to encourage imaginative and productive research in its unparalleled library collections of American history and culture through 1876, will award to qualified scholars a number of short- and long-term Visiting Research Fellowships during the year June 1, 1996 - May 31, 1997.
Several categories of awards are offered for scholarly research at AAS. One category provides funding (from the National Endowment for the Humanities) for four to twelve months' residence at the Society, while the other categories provide one to three months' support. The stipends for each of the shortterm fellowships have been increased for the 1996-1997 competition. Research Associate status (without stipend) is available to qualified applicants. Through an arrangement with the Newberry Library, AAS encourages applications for joint short-term fellowship tenure in both Chicago and Worcester.
Fellowships offered are as follows:
AAS-National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowships - for four (normally six) to twelve months of support (maximum $30,000) for research on any subject on which the Society has strong holdings.
Although the normal minimum is six months, NEH guidelines now permit the Society to arrange tenure of four to five months in certain circumstances. Not open to foreign nationals (except those who have been resident in the U.S. for at least three years) or to degree candidates.
Kate B. and Hall J. Peterson Fellowships - for one to three months' support (at $950 per month) for research on any subject for which the Society has strong holdings. Dissertation writers and foreign nationals are eligible.
AAS-American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Fellowships - for one to two months' residence (at $950 per month) by persons working in any area of American eighteenth-century studies. Degree candidates are not eligible.
For all these fellowships, the deadline for receipt of completed applications, including letters of recommendation, is January 15, 1996. Announcement of the awards will be made on or about March 25, 1996. At least two AAS-NEH fellowships will be awarded, together with some fourteen to sixteen short-term awards.
A brochure containing full details about the fellowship program and information about the Society's collections, along with application forms, may be obtained by writing John B. Hench, Director of Research and Publication, Room A, American Antiquarian Society, 185 Salisbury St., Worcester, Massachusetts, 01609-1634, or by telephoning (508) 752-5813 or 755-5221.
