Blog Diss: Crowdsourcing Reading Lists, Parts Three and Four-New Media/Digital Humanities and Oppositional Media Studies

Greetings once more for the exciting third instalment of my crowdsourced reading lists! Today’s list is a bit longer because it includes two of my fields; it simply felt too arbitrary to attempt to decide whether many works I’ve included (particularly those I haven’t read) belonged in the New Media/DH or the Oppositional Media Studies field, so I elected to post them together.

As always, comments, suggestions, and interventions are welcome!
