Books and Culture

A division of Christianity Today, Books and Culture is a print and online magazine that attempts to discuss and understand the academic life and the world at large. Their email newsletter is an easy way to keep informed.

Chronicle of Higher Education

The Chronicle of Higher Education is the No. 1 source of news, information, and jobs for college and university faculty members and administrators. (This can be accessed on Biola's campus only, unless you have a subscription.)

Conference on Christianity and Literature

The Conference on Christianity and Literature is a national organization interested in the relationship of Christianity and literature and dedicated to both scholarly excellence and collegial exchange. An allied organization of the Modern Language Association, the CCL is active in the annual MLA national convention (December 27-30) as well as in seven regional conferences held at rotating sites throughout North America.

Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Criticism and Theory

Now expanded and updated, The Johns Hopkins Online Guide to Literary Theory and Criticismis an indispensable resource for scholars and students of literary theory and discourse. Revised extensively to reflect a decade of rapidly changing scholarship, the Online Guide features 48 new entries and subentries. Compiled by 275 specialists from around the world, the Online Guide presents a comprehensive historical survey of the field's most important figures, schools, and movements. It includes more than 240 alphabetically arranged entries on critics and theorists, critical schools and movements, and the critical and theoretical innovations of specific countries and historical periods.

Literary Resources on the Net

This set of pages is a collection of links to sites on the Internet dealing especially with English and American literature, excluding most single electronic texts, and is limited to collections of information useful to academics.

Online Writing Lab

In addition to easily searchable APA and MLA pages, Purdue's Owl Family of Sites offers handouts and helpful hints for all kinds of writing styles, including job search writing.

Project Guttenberg

Project Gutenberg is the first and largest single collection of free electronic books, or eBooks. Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg, invented eBooks in 1971 and continues to inspire the creation of eBooks and related technologies today.

Voice of the Shuttle

Started in 1994 as a suite of static Web pages, VoS has now been rebuilt as a database that serves content dynamically on the Web. Most of the original structure of the site has been maintained, so it models the way the humanities are organized for user research and teaching. If Michel Foucault wrote about The Order of Things, then VoS may be said to be about "the ordering of things"—the ceaseless reconfiguration of humanities knowledge assisted by the new technologies of dynamic information.
