What about the digital humanities interests you (mapping, crowdsourcing, research...etc.)?

a person's constitution, their upbringing, their emotional narrative matter for the kind of mathematics they do. as much as we'd like to say that their mathematics is entirely divorced from that very wishy-washy thing, I think that since we've got many centuries of both mathematical texts and biographical information about mathematicians, it makes quite a lot of sense to perform a big data analysis of those texts. what makes Kate a topologist and Srinivasa a q-serieser? it might be useful to know that to understand the emotional timbres, tones, melodies, and rhythms associated with different sorts of mathematics, and maybe in knowing those timbres, tones, rhythms, and melodies, we might do better mathematics, as well as singing our own life-songs with a stronger, more potent vocabulary.


I used to work for the ARTFL project at uchicago and these days I'm interested in doing fine grained culturomics on mathematics.
