  2. 2. Intermediation (N. Katherine Hayles)  focuses on understanding the interactions among media  privileges multiple causalities over linear causality  describes the interactions between systems of representation (code and language) and modes of representation (analog and digital) From Hayles’ My Mother Was a Computer: Digital Subjects and Literary Texts.
  3. 3. Digital thematic research collections (John Unsworth)  electronic and multimedia in nature  extensive but thematically coherent  structured but expandable  designed to support research  always authored and usually multi-authored  represent collections of digital primary resources, which are often second-generation digital resources from Unsworth’s “Thematic Research Collections.” Paper presented at the Modern Language Association’s Annual Conference, December 2000. http://people.lis.illinois.edu/~unsworth/MLA.00/
