Dear Willard,

I intersected Bentkowska's and Tannenbaum's suggestions:

"Humanities should a.o. train students to use the power of computing to
enable inquiries that by hand and brain alone would
be too difficult or time-consuming to be feasible, thus opening major
new vistas on our disciplines and ourselves."

That makes perfect sense to me.

My take on Willard's definition, combined with the Google approach:
DH is: trying to explain art (and literature, and philosophy, and
music...) to a computer.
