Reflections and surveys of the field
- Roberto A. Busa, "Foreword: Perspectives on the Digital Humanities", in A Companion to Digital Humanities, eds. Susan Schreibman, Ray Siemens and John Unsworth, Oxford: Blackwell, 2004, pp xvi-xxi. Busa is often cited as the pioneer of both humanities computing and digital humanities; his work dates back to the late 1940s: "During the World War II, between 1941 and 1946, I began to look for machines for the automation of the linguistic analysis of written texts. I found them, in 1949, at IBM in New York City."

- "The Future of the Digital Humanities", Feb 2009. Discussion hosted by HASTAC Scholars Michael Gavin and Kathleen Smith.
- Tara McPherson, "Introduction: Media Studies and the Digital Humanities", Cinema Journal 48:2 (Winter 2009), pp 119-123. Suggests a typology for the digital humanities that makes distinctions between the computing humanities, blogging humanities and multimodal humanities. The computing humanities focus on building tools, infrastructure, standards and collections whereas the blogging humanities are concerned with the production of networked media and peer-to-peer writing. The multimodal humanities bring together scholarly tools, databases, networked writing and peer-to-peer commentary while also leveraging the potential of the visual and aural media that are part of contemporary life.
