1) Is the genealogy of the term 'humanities computing' right seen as follows:
h.c. <= comp. in the hum. <= computational methods or models in the
humanities (something like 'statistical methods in the social sciences'?)

2) I'm right when I state that there is an analogy in building the
terms 'digital humanitites' and 'social sciences'?
