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.
