Thanks to a Pelagios 2018 Working Group grant we are hosting this one day Digital Humanities event on Linked Open Data for Australia, at the HIVE, Curtin University, Bentley Campus, Perth.

The speakers, from across Australia, will explain their mapping and cultural collections projects, and discuss how Linked Open Data may help create more useful and reusable cultural content and research between humanities, IT and the GLAM sector in Australia.

From philosophical questions such as recalibrating ontologies and technologies to more appropriately address local and specific Aboriginal ways of describing, navigating and experiencing the landscapes, to current Australian Digital Humanities projects of maps, data, landscapes, 3D models, digital art, and collections, we will present and display landscape data, historical mapping and visualisation displays, demonstrate the usefulness of mixed reality headsets, investigate related cultural artefact knowledge (Indigenous and colonial), and lead the discussion towards the integration of linked open data and 3D models.

Venue: The HIVE (inside John Curtin Gallery), Curtin University

Speakers (alphabetical order, program later), with provisional title and topic

Please note, if you do not know what RDF, Semantic Web, or Linked Open Data is, we will have an intro workshop on this (and current Digital Humanities projects including Virtual Reality) in the Curtin Library Makerspace, Level 5, 2-4:30PM 26 July 2018. The working title is Linked Open Data but a link to the free workshop will be provided from this page.
