Mapping Digital Humanities in Austria

Mapping the research landscape of Digital Humanities (DH) in Austria

The aim of the study was to examine the DH (Digital Humanities) in the Austrian Research Area with regard to the following questions

  • What are the short-term, medium-term and long-term objectives in institutional planning for DH? Which impact should be achieved and how is it estimated?
  • What distinguishes the Austrian DH research landscape (also with regard to international comparison); which challenges or problems arise? Which cooperations, themes, methods and infrastructures are used as well as in which regional distribution? Which best practice examples are there?

Part of the study was an online questionnaire, which was sent to the community in April - May 2019. In a subsequent study phase, qualitative expert interviews with selected persons were conducted. The results of the study will be published (autumn 2019) and discussed in a public event with representatives of the community.
