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.

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.
