If there is such a thing as anew computer-assisted literary criticism, itsexpression lies in a model that is asbroad-based as that presented in John Smith'sseminal article, ``Computer Criticism,'' and isas encompassing of the discipline of literarystudies as it is tied to the evolving nature ofthe electronic literary text that lies at theheart of its intersection with computing. Itis the desire to establish the parameters ofsuch a model for the interaction betweenliterary studies and humanities computing –for a model of the new computer-assistedliterary criticism – that gave rise to thepapers in this collection and to the severalconference panel-presentations and discussionsthat, in their print form, these papersrepresent.
