• Due to the great interest for the first two sessions of the Digital Humanities Doctoral Seminar, we are very happy to announce two new online sessions on August 3rd & 4th and on September 3rd & 4th. 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: http://o4dh.com/seminars
