Metadata Schema for Modernist Networks

A one-day workshop to engage humanities scholars and technical experts in the development of a standardized metadata schema and vocabulary that describes and enables discovery of digital projects in modernist studies.

Loyola University Chicago will host a workshop for 16 participants in digital modernist projects in the U.S., Canada, and abroad which will result in the launching of ModNets as the most recent "node" in the Advanced Research Consortium (ARC). ModNets, a federation of digital projects in the field of modernist studies, faces unique challenges as it joins the ARC organization: we will address issues specific to the field of modernist studies, particularly the metadata needs for new media, such as film and phonography. The purpose of this workshop, which will include project directors, ModNets and ARC leaders, and metadata analysts, is to review ARC's RDF (metadata) vocabulary in the light of modernist scholarship and enhance it to meet the particular needs of modernist artifacts. The outcome will be a list of proposed changes to the existing ARC vocabularies and a working set of RDF documents for two existing projects.
