Subject: what makes the digital humanities interesting?
This is a question directed to those who are in or associated with the
digital humanities primarily in a technical role, especially
those with a broad range of experiences in computing of all sorts. What
in particular makes the digital humanities interesting? Have you
observed any characteristics that seem unique to activities in the
intersection of computing and the humanities? Are there particular kinds
of challenges you don't tend to meet elsewhere? From a technical
perspective how would you characterise these activities? What
does humanities scholarship as it currently is have to offer computing?
