Symposium CREATE: European Performing Arts Dataverse (Epad)
Filmtheater De Uitkijk, 9 november
Studying Performing Arts Across Borders: Towards a European Performing Arts Dataverse (EPAD), In Filmtheater De Uitkijk, 9 november, 9:00 am – 6:00 pm.
EPAD is a network of scholars investigating the history of European performing arts (theatre, music, cinema) using digital methods and datasets. The aim of international cooperation is driven by two interconnected aims: (1) a technical-infrastructural purpose, facilitating (2) the comparative-historical objective.
The purpose of the consortium is to share expertise, facilities and netaworks that will lay the foundations for creating an infrastructure that brings together existing digital data collections in Europe on the history of performing arts (cinema, theatre, music) and that allows for the joint exploration of these datasets in historical research. We aim to build upon the CLARIAH infrastructure and tools for harmonizing and querying socio-economic datasets based on a linked data approach (CLARIAH Structured Data Hub). The work involves developing ontologies, shared data models and thesauri containing internationally shared terms for performing arts data, as well as building the actual infrastructure within the context of the European Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities DARIAH.
