This paper focuses on a long-term collaboration between the two poles of the DH-dipole; the D-pole: a CSCW (Computer-supported cooperative work) - Computer Science scholar, Sasha Rudan, and the H-pole: a Comparative Literature scholar, Eugenia Kelbert. It involves work with a larger team as well, including this paper’s co-authors, among others. Our research started through a mutual interest in the digital analysis of stylistic features of fictional texts, mostly novels. Eventually, it developed towards designing a new ecosystem for collaborative research in the textual and stylometric DH domains. From a practical research question in stylometry in translingualism, we evolved to developing new tools, a DH infrastructure, later a DH research collaboration ecosystem and metaresearch questions addressing challenges of DH collaboration and its practical solutions. Here, we discuss the oppositions between the different disciplines involved, the challenges we faced on the road, and how we tried to avoid them by getting a level higher in our collaboration.
