Data about people is personal, social, political, and cultural.
The session I would like to propose for the Summit is on how using linked open data can aid in understanding the lives of people in ancient history right through to contemporary “history” and what issues can also arise. What curatorial processes are in place to support linking and publishing openly (or not) data about people?
Recording information in cultural customs and documentary forms about people to understand their lives, their community, their milieu, is a part of cultural heritage practice and often the subject of research.
What are the best practices in different contexts and why?
All delegates working in GLAMs and in digital humanities research e.g. classics, prosopography, archaeology, and history, are invited to share their curatorial ideas and practices.
