MLA is used in literature and other humanities courses and uses in-text parenthetical citations. The style manual provides detailed guidance about using and citing textual materials such as sacred texts and other literary works, including anthologies. MLA continues to evolve; recent guidelines about citing tweets and other social media are available. MLA was designed to support humanities research, which may draw from multi-disciplinary sources in multiple genres, and may involve interpreting and identifying the meaning of cultural artifacts and documents within a historical context (Hacker).
