Is DH treated as a methodology or a field?
- My current set of questions about scholarship in the digital humanities

I've recently been thinking about the digital humanities, and specifically digital history, and have begun wondering whether it is generally treated as a field or as a methodology.
That is: when I list my academic interests, I typically list several fields of study such as early modern Britain, the European Reformation(s), the history of the book...and digital history/humanities. Yet I also USE digital history/digital humanities to study topics in other fields. As a result, I've been trying to piece together some ideas about this seeming crossover, and I wondered whether any of you might be able to point me to work that addresses this question, or have ideas about it yourselves. Thanks in advance!
