Abstract:It is now widely recognized that the creation, management, and analysis of content other than text is extremely important if the digital humanities are to deliver access to, and provide an analytical purchase on, the full range of human culture. However it is not clear to us whether the cataloguing and classification systems for digital content are up to the task. Difficulties in this area threaten to impede both the development of tools and techniques . and the production of sound theoretical results. In our paper we discuss some of these problems, focusing on relationships amongst the various cultural modes of expression. With the intention of convening a larger discussion of how these confusions might be remedied, we then propose directions for some clarification and improvement. However, the larger issues here are not merely terminological and resist any easy resolution.
