Harnessing the potential of semantic web technologies to support and diversify scholarship is gaining popularity in the digital humanities. This talk describes a number of projects utilising Linked Data ranging from musicology and library metadata, to the representation of the narrative structure, philological, bibliographical, and museological data of ancient Mesopotamian literary compositions.
Dr Terhi Nurmikko-Fuller is a Lecturer in Digital Humanities at the Centre for Digital Humanities Research at the Australian National University. With a background in the archaeology and languages of the ancient Near East, during her time at the Web Science Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Southampton, she focused on the potential of semantic web technologies and Linked Data to support and diversify the study and online representation of the historical, mythological, and fictional narratives of Sumerian literature.
