CFP of Interest: Ethics in Linked Data in GLAMS

  • 1.  CFP of Interest: Ethics in Linked Data in GLAMS

    Posted Jan 24, 2021 08:29 PM
    Hi folks,

    (insert usual cross-posting forgiveness request)

    I'm editing a book for Litwin focused on Ethics in Linked Data in GLAMS. From the blurb:

    > This book aims to collect the voices of practitioners, technologists, and developers working on linked data initiatives; scholars working at the intersection of ethics, cultural heritage, and technology; and workers in GLAMS, among others in order to explore emerging and changing technical and ethical landscapes. The editors seek chapters examining what it means to be ethical in a linked data environment, and especially welcome case studies, theoretical and practice-based essays, stories, content analyses, and other methods.
