The workshop „Persons – Data – Repositories“ focuses on biographic research in digital science environments. Biographies of historical persons and person information are the central points of interest. This is closely connected to the requirement of making accessible and connecting the continously growing and diffusely dispersed databases of related information.
High priority falls to the development of tools for handling person data which allow to merge scientific information and to preserve diversity of methods. This requires co-operative and decentral concepts. The change of working methods in the humanities gives rise to the question for new perspectives of data usage, which is also connected to legal questions. The workshop offers an open platform for presenting and discussing these topics.
The workshop is organized by the DFG funded project „Person Data Repository“ and will take place at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. It is possible to present an own project within a poster session. There will also be time to discuss specific topics and individual questions in smaller groups at organized discussion tables.
