Keywords: Multimodal Scholar

Multimodal Scholar (məltiˌmōdlˈskälər):

Tara McPherson describes the multimodal scholar, who not only uses digital tools for the purposes of research but also leverages such technologies for authoring interactive works; with a keen eye towards the symbiotic and nuanced relationship between her argumentation and the digital forms she employs, the multimodal scholar thus also renegotiates the connections between author and reader. McPherson states:
The multimodal humanist brings together databases, scholarly tools, networked writing, and peer-to-peer commentary while also leveraging the potential of visual and aural media that so dominate contemporary life. This multimodal scholar complements rather than replaces other types of digital humanists, expanding the scope and reach of the field.  She aims to produce work that reconfigures the relationships among author, reader, and technology while investigating the computer simultaneously as a platform, a medium, and a visualization device.
