The audience will be stimulated to think about the relationship between the Humanities and Information Systems in a way opposite to the usual. A lot of research has been conducted on the application of computing in the Humanities, but this panel will explore the reverse process of enrichment that takes place. The purpose is to give recognition to work that has already been done in this regard by means of identifying a substantial sub-discipline, but also to stimulate more and deliberate research that explores ways to enhance Information Systems by interweaving insights and methods from the Humanities. The panel believes that such an endeavour may enhance ICT to empower the communities using these technologies.
