    What is interesting about any of the terms put forward is that they still
    designate a separation between computers and the discipline of the
    Humanities. Perhaps the 4th iteration of the field will assume no such
    separation. It will be assumed that the Humanities involves computers for
    research, teaching, and learning. That one cannot be a Humanties scholar
    without it. Much in the way that it is assumed that one cannot be a
    scholar without the involvement of books. . .
