POSTDATA – Poetry Standardization and Linked Open Data

The project funded by ERC Starting Grant 2015 – Horizon 2020, aims at shortening the digital gap among poetry and technology.

Making poetry available online as machine-readable data will open a great world of possibilities of linking, indexing and extracting new information.

WHAT IS POSTDATA?

We aim to transform
traditional scholarship on poetry into a digital humanities research environment.
Combining cutting-edge philological and computational research
we are constructing
a virtual world of semantically linked poetry.

The case of POETRY is especially significant, as every country, group and literary genre has followed an independent and idiosyncratic evolution path. As a result, online access to poetry collections is highly fragmented. The addition of a “semantic” layer of data to existing different databases and digital resources devoted to poetry will boost interoperability among them and will let scholars develop innovative comparative studies, which were not possible to carry out before.
