The CLC is located in G20 Colson Hall. As a special unit within the WVU English Department, the CLC provides consulting, outreach, and support for innovations in humanities scholarship. Literary computing draws attention to the forms and poetics of all media, offering a new focus on the nature of literary texts. Founded in 1991 by Patrick Conner, the CLC continues to grow under the direction of Sandy Baldwin, with the support of the Department of English and the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences. The CLC also provides opportunities for undergraduate students to work as paid interns or in work-study positions, and for graduate students to serve as assistant coordinators for the lab.
