Enabling Research of Cultural Heritage and Recent History using COURAGE Linked Data Registry

Poster & Demo

The COURAGE project aims at preserving the history and heritage of dissent in former socialist countries. The items of so-called cultural opposition are curated now in various collections, and COURAGE builds a registry of these collections. The registry is a Linked Data platform, and data in-put, editing and publishing are all done using RDF and SPARQL. We present our effort of building the registry and introduce our experiences with this quite unique born-RDF historical dataset.
