- Gibbs, Frederick W. “New Forms of History: Critiquing Data and Its Representations.”The American Historian, 2016.
- Thiebault, John. “Visualizations and Historical Arguments.” Writing History in the Digital Age, March 23, 2012.
- Tom Scheinfeldt, “Where’s the Beef?” Does Digital Humanities Have to Answer Questions?
