At the beginning of 2020, the “Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities (ACDH)” was restructured and expanded to include a Cultural Heritage area. The institute was renamed to“Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ACDH-CH)”. As part of a major internal restructuring of the Academy, a number of larger and long-term projects and research groups were integrated into the institute to tap into the synergies at the border between methodological innovation and classical long-term humanities approaches.
With the integration of the Department of Musicology of the Institute for Art and Music Historical Research, the Austrian Biographical Lexicon and the “Austrian Corpora and Editions” department - together with the “Dictionary of Bavarian Dialects in Austria”, which has been part of the Institute since 2016 - important long-term projects that already work with digital tools are now united under one roof.
