Kathleen Fitzpatrick discussed the origin of the term (referencing
Kirschenbaum's previous history of it) in *Debates in the Digital
Humanities* "The Humanities, Done Digitally
 http://dhdebates.gc.cuny.edu/debates/text/30 " and traces it to the
discussions that gave *The Companion to Digital Humanities *its title.
Susan Hockey's "The History of Humanities Computing
<http://digitalhumanities.org:3030/companion/view?docId=blackwell/9781405103213/9781405103213.xml&chunk.id=ss1-2-1&toc.depth=1&toc.id=ss1-2-1&brand=9781405103213_brand>"
in that volume may also shed light on the question.
