Collecting Women: Linking People Data (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Fabio Mariani, Lynn Rother

14-täglich | Donnerstag | 14:00 - 17:30 | 16.10.2023 - 01.02.2024 | HMS 139

Inhalt: Wikidata, the most extensive open knowledge base, is a crucial tool for data analysis, journalism, and, not least, research. As of September 2023, data of 10,856,208 individuals are registered in Wikidata. Of these, only 2,240,244 (21%) are registered as having female gender. Through an interdisciplinary approach, the course addresses this gap in female representation in the context of digital art history and provenance research. Indeed, on the one hand, in the case of art history, this problem originates from the way history has been written and continues to be written, perpetuating structural biases and exclusions. The course will, therefore, explore the hitherto neglected variety of women's activities in art, with a particular focus on women as agents, artists, collectors, and dealers in the art market. On the other hand, with a data-oriented approach, the course will include practical lessons to learn how to use knowledge bases such as Wikidata, focusing on analyzing data, finding biases, and helping correct them.
