I was drawn to Humanities Computing by the name! I hoped that it offered a more expansive, less mechanistic view than computer science about the work of computing, the nature of software and the role that humans play in its creation.
I don't believe that this is central to the field today, but I remain hopeful that at least a corner or elbow will exist in the future that addresses these concerns. I think that this is a fundamental contribution that humanities computing stands to make to computer science.
