Towards Publishing European Poetry as Linked Open Data

POSTDATA is a 5 year's European Research Council (ERC)
Starting Grant Project that started in May 2016 and is hosted by the Universidad
Nacional de EducaciĆ³n a Distancia (UNED), Madrid, Spain. The context of the
project is the corpora of European Poetry (EP), with a special focus on poetic
materials from different languages and literary traditions. POSTDATA aims to
offer a standardized model in the philological field and a metadata application
profile (MAP) for EP in order to build a common classification of all these
poetic materials. The information of Spanish, Italian and French repertoires
will be published in the Linked Open Data (LOD) ecosystem. Later we expect to
extend the model to include additional corpora. The final goal of the POSTDATA
project is: i) to be able to publish all the data locked in the WIS, in LOD,
where any agent interested will be able to build applications over the data in
order to serve final users; ii) to build a Web platform where: a) researchers,
students and other final users interested in EP will be able to access poems
(and their analyses) of all databases; b) researchers, students and other final
users will be able to upload poems, the digitalized images of manuscripts, and
fill in the information concerning the analysis of the poem, collaboratively
contributing to a LOD dataset of poetry.
