Workshop: SPARQL for (Digital) Humanists – Querying Wikidata and the MiMoTextBase
Contribution to DHd2023
DH2023, Graz, Workshop Venue 7
1:30pm – 5:30pm
The workshop aims to share theoretical and practical knowledge about modeling data in the humanities and especially literary history in the paradigm of Linked Open Data, to introduce the syntax of the query language SPARQL, and to demonstrate the advantages of modeling and providing data as knowledge graphs.2 The focus is on teaching SPARQL in theoretical and practical sessions. Participants should gain the competence to understand the structure of SPARQL and to write both simple and moderately complex queries on their own.
Interested readers can find a SPARQL tutorial on the MiMoText website to learn more about basic SPARQL queries and how to write and modify some useful expressions and functions using the (embedded) MiMoTextBase endpoint: https://mimotext.github.io/MiMoTextBase_Tutorial/.
