Linked Open Usable Data for Cultural Heritage: Perspectives on Community Practices and Semantic Interoperability
PhD Thesis in Digital Humanities conducted by Julien Antoine Raemy (University of Basel)
Supervised by PD Dr. Peter Fornaro (University of Basel), Prof. Dr. Walter Leimgruber (University of Basel), and Dr. Robert Sanderson (Yale University)
The thesis is grounded as part of the SNSF-funded Participatory Knowledge Practices in Analogue and Digital Image Archives (PIA) research project (2021-2025), which aims to develop a Citizen Science platform around three photographic collections of the Swiss Society for Folklore Studies (SSFS/SGV - Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Volkskunde)' archives, namely the Atlas of Swiss Folklore (SGV_05), Kreis Family (SGV_10), and Ernst Brunner (SGV_12).
