        Subject: The influence of humanities

Often when discussing Digital Humanities, we focus our speech on how do the
new digital tools help shape the humanist scholarly practice, bridging
collaboration between humanist scholars and IT professionals or, more
broadly, more technologically-oriented people. However, a perspective that
seems to be heavily overlooked is how this cooperation simultaneously
inspires and transforms the practice of the latter.

In this sense, I come to ask if anyone has written about the influence of
digital humanities on the methodological and theoretical development of
other research fields, as part of the increasing dialogue between humanists
and IT people. So far I only have knowledge that in the CAA 2018
archeological proceedings this might have been discussed.

This is a research line I am becoming interested to develop as I believe
that a dialogue is always bi-directional, hence it would fall short to
study merely the 'them to us' influence. Also, knowing how we influence
others can also help providing a greater sense of identity to the field.

All suggestions will be most appreciated,

Best regards,
Andr├ęz Pacheco
