DH (Digital Humanities) has flourished in China for over ten years. Over the past years, we strive to keep up with the world, re-examine the past and configure the present. When Prof. Dr. Melissa Terras from the University of Edinburgh visited Nanjing University in November 2019, she asked us about the origin and features of DH in China. She raised an insightful question that left us in deep thought: what unique vision can the origin of ‘Ren’-oriented Chinese humanism, and humanities and spiritual legacy represented by the Confucian-based disciplines of ‘Six Arts’ bring to the DH research?
