        Subject: Digital Prosopography of the Roman Republic as Linked Open Data (Digital Classicist Seminar)

Digital Classicist London Seminar 2020

John Bradley (KCL), Digital Prosopography of the Roman Republic 
as Linked Open Data
Friday, Jun 26, 2020, 17:30 (UK time)

Online seminar, streamed live and archived at: https://youtu.be/rFRQXnwkzGE

The Digital Prosopography of the Roman Republic (DPRR: http://romanrepublic.ac.uk) 
database was described from a classicist's perspective by the project's 
Principal Investigator, Prof Henrik Mouritsen, last year. Here we
present an alternative Digital Humanities Linked open Data (LoD) perspective by
considering DPRR's RDF (Resource Description Framework) Server at 
http://romanrepublic.ac.uk/rdf. RDF has been described as a possible foundation 
for LoD. In what ways was RDF well, and less well, suited to DPRR? Finally, 
the purpose of LoD is to allow anyone worldwide to discover strikingly new 
connections within materials. Here we will see how DPRR can, and indeed already 
has, allowed this to happen.
