Data Science in Arts and Humanities: What is useful data?

In the last years there was a transition from closed digital archives to open data repositories. Also interoperability became more important in the last years. Linked Open Data shows the importance of standardized metadata and IIIF demonstrates the qualities of standardized image data sets. But what are typical applications of such data sets? The talk will give an insight into this topic and shows how important the humanities are in the digital domain, not only for research.

The event may be photographed and/or video recorded for archival, educational, and related promotional purposes. By attending this event, you are giving your consent to be photographed and/or video recorded.

International Institutions in the Digital Age

The global academic community owes much of its development to the contributions of international schools and academies, particularly those in Rome. These institutions have fostered connections between historical and academic fields, while providing a platform for exchange with local academic communities. In today’s digital age, there is a growing shift towards openly available digitized material. But how do these changes in research practices and technological advancements impact the operation of such centers? And how do they position themselves in times of digital connectivity, and what does digitization change for institutions remaining on-site?
To explore these questions, we are pleased to announce a roundtable discussion featuring renowned scholars Prof. Regine Hunziker-Rodewald (Universit√© de Strasbourg) and Andrei Aioanei (Universit√© de Strasbourg), as well as representatives from essential institutes and schools, including the Bibliotheca Hertziana (Dr. Alessandro Adamou), the British School at Rome (Prof. Rapha√ęle Mouren), German Historical Institute¬†in Rome (Dr. J√∂rg Hoernschemeyer) and Istituto Svizzero (Dr. Maria B√∂hmer).

Moderation: Prof. Tobias Hodel, Digital Humanities, University of Bern
