Proceeding from a background in Middle-Eastern studies (with a focus on modern languages and applied linguistics), Karlheinz Mörth has been working at the interface between modern ICT and humanities studies throughout his academic life. Besides teaching Arabic and Modern Persian linguistics, he has also given digital humanities courses. His research interests fall mainly in the fields of text technology, eLexicography, text lexicography, methodologies for the build-up and maintenance of digital corpora, annotation strategies and tools, and corpus-related encoding standards. Over the years, he has developed a strong interest in digital infrastructures, digital infrastructure components, and their role in the humanities. He has been coordinating (on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy) the Austrian CLARIN and DARIAH activities since January 2014. In recent years, his work has been focused on the build-up of the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, which he has been heading since 2015.
