Digital humanities (DH) is an area which is still in the process of being shaped. Not only are the borders of DH unclear, the core understanding of the nature of the thing is not fixed either. Is it a discipline, a set of methodologies, as field of praxis, an auxiliary discipline, none of those, or all of them?
In this talk the praxis of making computer systems will be explored, discussing how DH relate to both the humanities, specific humanities disciplines, and computer science. It will also be discussed how DH operates in the span between theory, praxis, and modelling.
