- 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.
