Graduate Student and DHDK tutor

Delfina Sol Pandiani is a graduate student in the Master's Degree course for Digital Humanities and Digital Knowledge (DHDK), and the Student Tutor for the same course. Their Master's thesis was focused on the development and application of semantic and interactive technologies for projects about civic education surrounding cultural artifacts. The project also proposed a conceptual model called RICO (Related Interpretations of Cultural Objects) to formalize heuristic interpretations of cultural artifacts. By representing the relationships between cultural artifacts, cognitive agents, interpretable objects, and interpretations, the model allows for knowledge representation of cultural artifacts characterized by varied, emotional, and sometimes counter-factual interpretations. They are an active member of the SPICE project, at /DH.arc, focusing on practices for “Social Cohesion, Participation, and Inclusion through Cultural Engagement”.
