Linked Pasts is dedicated to exploring the issues and opportunities raised by developing an ecosystem of online open materials for the study of the past. Its yearly symposia take a hands-on approach to the subject of implementing Linked Open Data—the mechanism by which digital resources can be connected through having something in common (be it place, person, time, or some other entity). Bringing together a diverse group of researchers, Linked Pasts facilitates pragmatic developments in the production, curation and use of historical data in academia and cultural heritage more broadly.

Linked Pasts III @Stanford uses the structure of real-world use cases, provocations and breakout groups to address the challenges of linking people, their works, and place in time. It will be of interest to anyone working with digital data and looking to make their resources more discoverable and usable. Linked Pasts III provides a unique opportunity for scholars, technologists, librarians, and archivists to explore, build and shape linked data practices together.

The 2017 symposium will take place December 4, 5, and 6 at the Stanford Humanities Center, Stanford University. Linked Pasts III is sponsored by Pelagios Commons, the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis at Stanford (CESTA), the Stanford Humanities Center, and the Stanford University Libraries.

Registration is free and required via Eventbrite. (Registration closes November 26.) See the Eventbrite page for the tentative symposium schedule and speakers list.
