In a change from our usual programming we will be bringing you a blog post directly from the Ontologies for Prosopography workshop at Digital Humanities 2014.
The workshop hopes to bring prosopographers and prosopographical datsets together (preferably through LOD).
Datasets in the following areas were represented at the workshop: Continue reading SNAP at DH2014
During the first SNAP:DRGN workshop a breakout group was convened to discuss the potential API for the project. Rather than come up with a specific API during that session, we instead focused on creating a “wish list” of applications and functions that we wanted to support. We were then able to abstract the functions that would be needed to support the list. Continue reading Looking Towards an API for SNAP:DRGN
The SNAP Project is proud to announce the Ontologies for Prosopography: Who’s Who? or, Who was Who? one-day workshop developed in conjunction with the People of the Founding Era project based at the University of Virginia. The workshop will give the opportunity for SNAP to present our data model to a wider audience and engage with the researchers working on similar problems other periods and geographic areas.

At last week’s SNAP workshop in King’s College London, we had a very successful and enjoyable two-day meeting, introducing the principles of and the preliminary work done by the SNAP:DRGN project in its first three months, and hearing from several potential project partners about their datasets, practices and reactions to our proposals. It was an extremely productive and positive affair, even when discussions sometimes became vigorous! I don’t mean to summarize all of the discussions and outcomes here (a series of blog posts by my colleagues over the next couple of weeks will do more of that), but I will share what I can of the presentations and slideshows that were shown at the workshop.

Next week we shall be hosting a small workshop (already fully booked) at King’s College London to introduce a selection of potential project partners, data providers, advisors and other stakeholders to the SNAP:DRGN project.
The principal aims of the workshop include:
- Introduce the goals of the SNAP:DRGN project, the core datasets (LGPN, TM, PIR) and their current formats and contents, and the data models and ontologies that we propose to use for the preliminary data ingest.
- Learn about other prosopographical and linked data approaches in use in history and the digital humanities.
- Learn about other classical person datasets that might be suitable for exposing in SNAP-recommended RDF format and adding to our triplestore.
