This doctoral seminar is an introduction to Digital Humanities defined as the application of methods and tools from Information and Communication Technologies to areas of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Rather than a simple application of computer tools, Digital Humanities offer a multidisciplinary perspective that has recently led to rethinking certain practices, e.g., in the acquisition and representation of knowledge in the field, and opened up new perspectives for the disciplines concerned.
In the framework of this training, the focus will be on the digital representation of cultural objects in the form of Linked and Open Data accessible by means of standards of the Semantic Web.
To validate the acquired knowledge, the seminar includes a full day of hands-on practice on how to query and to structure data in cultural heritage collections.
2) Digital Humanities & Cultural Heritage Course: web page
Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (China)
Summer School: 19-30 August 2019
The aim of this course is to teach the concepts, technologies and techniques underlying the building of Ontologies and Terminologies for the Semantic Web with special application to the knowledge areas of Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage.
Learning Outcomes:
At the end of the course the student should be able to:
1. Understand and discuss fundamental concepts, advantages and limits of Ontologies and Terminologies for the Semantic Web in Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage
2. Understand and use ontologies and terminologies in the context of Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage
3. Understand the relationship between Ontology, Terminology and Ontoterminology.
4. Understand complicated argumentative texts on the topics discussed during the course.
5. Identify the principal ideas, arguments, etc. in such texts and to separate them from side issues.
6. Reflect critically about the concept of ontological modelling, and the state of the art of research at the intersections of Ontology, Terminology and Digital Humanities.
7. Explain the possibilities of digital and computational tools for ontological modelling in the areas of Humanities and Cultural Heritage.
8. Perform hands-on modelling with Cmap Tools (Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, USA), Protégé (Stanford University, USA) and Tedi (Univ. Savoie Mont-Blanc, France).
9. Present their own model of ontologies-terminologies-ontoterminologies on knowledge areas related to the topics of the course.
