William Carpenter, assistant professor of English, will speak on “Examining Writers’ Styles with the Use of Computers, Word Processors, and Hypertext” 12:15 p.m. today in Skillman Library room 217.

The talk is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.

The lecture covers Carpenter’s implementation of an Integrating Computing into the Curriculum grant.

Integrating Computing into the Curriculum grants are administered by the Computing Services Advisory Committee. To learn more about the program, contact Robert Duncan, systems librarian, at x5156 or
