This article describes the use of digital technology and text markup in the production and dissemination of scholarship. Traditional narrative, as static, linked arguments and paragraphs reflect the constraints, limitations but important use of print technology. “Reconfiguring the narrative” to reflect the capabilities of online scholarship enables readers and writers to engage in more thorough explorations of the text, theory, concepts, and interpretations (Landow, 2006).
