to Andre Pacheco,

One of my collaborators, Ke Deng who is a statistician has 
published the paper, Association pattern discovery via theme 
dictionary models on the top journal of statistics (Journal of 
The Royal Statistical Society Series B-statistical Methodology) 
and it is based on the research on the DH project of Chinese 
Bibliographic database. It's not a dialogue between humanities 
and IT as you asked but I think there are many cases like this 
which may help you get a hint on the big picture.

Regarding André Pacheco's post on "The influence of 
humanities" from 2018-12-03:


That's a fascinating question you raise, wondering 
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."

I might point you to a workshop my organization funded 
in 2013 that was hosted by the University of Virginia 
called "'Are We Speaking in Code?' (Voicing the Craft & 
Tacit Understandings of Digital Humanities Software 
Development)." The workshop conversations, led by Bethany 
Nowviskie, may be relevant to your questions. You can read 
the final White Paper from that workshop on the NEH website,
