The Videographic Essay

Welcome to The Videographic Essay, a collection of writings about and examples of videographic criticism, edited by Christian Keathley, Jason Mittell, and Catherine Grant. As an open access, multimodal site of scholarship, this site will evolve over time, expanding the collection of examples and revising writing as relevant. Earlier versions of some of these writings were published in 2016 and 2019 by caboose books in the volume The Videographic Essay: Criticism in Sound & Image. This site offers the most accurate and stable versions of this material, and we ask that you cite and reference this version:

This material emerged from ‘Scholarship in Sound & Image,’ three workshops on videographic criticism that were hosted at Middlebury College in June 2015, 2017, and 2018; since 2019, the workshop has continued as part of Middlebury College's Digital Liberal Arts Summer Institute. The three original workshops were funded by two grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities program.
