Linked Data and the Digital Humanities -- A Match Made in Heaven or Hell?
The Linked Data paradigm and its technology stack are rapidly gaining traction in the Digital (Geo)Humanities. This keynote will review the value proposition of Linked Data for the Digital Humanities and then discuss benefits and shortcoming by focusing largely on geographic data such as places, expeditions, and so forth, as well as on ontologies to annotate these data.
