Event type: Seminar


Semantic Web technologies and Linked Data have the potential to support and complement traditional scholarship in Assyriology. In this talk, the suitability of three existing Web Ontology Language (OWL) ontologies (CIDOC CRM, FRBRoo, and Ontomedia) to adequately capture and represent the heterogeneous and incomplete narratives published by the Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature are discussed and evaluated.

Terhi Nurmikko-Fuller is a postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Oxford e-Research Centre. Her research involves the use of Linked Data and semantic technologies to support and diversity scholarship across a range of topics in the digital humanities.
