Presentation by Florian Windhager (University for Continuing Education Krems) & Matthias Schlögl (Austrian Center for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage / ACDH-CH)

Making Knowledge Graphs Less Terrible - On Transnational Harmonization and Visualization Strategies for Large Historical Data Collections

Starting from the philosophical notion that reductions of temporal complexity are used to create only “terrible or not so terrible” results in general, we reflect on how to steer digital history and humanities projects to the realms of the latter. With the data harmonization and visualization project InTaVia (https://intavia.eu) we worked on the transnational assembly of a cultural-historical knowledge graph, which integrates both data on cultural objects and related artist biographies. In parallel, the project aimed for the creation of an appealing and revealing user interface for this knowledge base. For that matter, it leverages principles of visual and narrative information design, to foster and support a whole range of cultural data practices by experts and non-expert users alike. The talk will outline recent achievements of this endeavor, together with limitations and challenges which we consider relevant for future projects dedicated to digital remediations of historiographical complexity.

The presentation will be digitally streamed.
