From April 23rd to 25th 2018, the CLiGS grouped welcomes two researchers from Spain: Helena Bermúdez Sabel and Pablo Ruiz Fabo from the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) in Madrid came to Würzburg to give a workshop on Linked Open Data (LOD) and to present their project POSTDATA (“Poetry Standardization and Linked Open Data”). As part of their visit, they will hold an evening lecture entitled “Linked Open Data: Unchain your Corpora”. The main goals of the workshop, which has been organized by José Calvo Tello, are to exchange experiences in modelling and creating literary corpora in the POSTDATA and CLiGS projects, as well as to discuss possibilities of using LOD approaches to enrich and interlink these data.

On April 8th was the Day of DH! – The occasion on which the world wide DH community makes a snapshot of its members acitivities during the day.
Where were the members of the CLiGS group? What did they do on that day?
As you can see on the map, we spent the day in different places: José Calvo and Daniel Schlör were in Würzburg, Ulrike Henny in Cologne and Christof Schöch was blogging from Kraków.
To get to know what we actually did on that day, check out the blog posts on the Day of DH 2016 website:
- Christof Schöch about his stay in Kraków
- José Calvo on the work on his corpus of Spanish novels and the collection of metadata
- Ulrike Henny about OCRing Spanish American texts and testing HeidelTime, a temporal tagger
Our overall impression was that people were very busy on that day (188 members representing the international DH community, some non-active members, some bustling Good-Morning-posts). We hope that the interest in the Day of DH event will continue and hopefully grow in the future!

One could assume that one of the first steps in a project involving the encoding of information with markup or the creation of XML files is to create a schema governing encoding procedures. But I’d say that this might not be necessarily true, especially when the subject matter is not entirely clear right from the start, in terms of a data model and features describing it. What did we actually encode? Analysing XML collections with Python weiterlesen
