Very nice to hear from you, Gurpreet, and from everyone doing
introductions. I'm Neil Fraistat from the University of Maryland in the
United States, where I am a Professor of English and Director of the
Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH). I am currently
Chair of the ADHO Steering Committee and Co-Chair of centerNet.

I would be happy to speak off list with Gurpreet and anyone else who is
thinking about setting up a dh center or institute, especially those who
are trying to do so beyond North America.

I can be reached at fraistat at umd.edu

Best,
Neil
