Dear colleagues,

As a followup to the question I just asked about interactions between
CS and the digital humanities, let me ask another. What are the
interesting problems & "grand challenges" arising in the digital
humanities that interest or should interest people in CS? Similarly,
excluding the funding concepts, what's in computer science research
that interests or should interest us in the humanities?

All comments welcome.

Many thanks.
