In the past months, we at @GlobalYAcademy have started to improve the visibility of young global scientists. I'll starting sharing more about what I learned through this about #digitization #academies #wikipedia and the visibility of researchers. Here's a picture of NYAs
#gyawiki
NYAs are national young academies. There are around 50 of them, some have a long and prominent history, some have just started *this week*.

Have a look globalyoungacademy.net/national-young…
NYAs are great (*I'm biased, as Executive Member of the GYA... :):
- scientific excellence is understood both in conventional terms, but also in terms of societal impact
- terms are limited. You have 4-5 years to *really* do work
- are typically very diverse! (@WikiWomenInRed)

Attending a really exciting @BritishAcademy workshop, 'Linking Data in Prosopography: Late Antique, Byzantine and Early Modern Studies', with no formal presentations and discussions collaboratively recorded on a Google doc! #Networks #Prosopography #Twitterstorians @ERC_CONNEC
Beginning with Charlotte Rouche raising issues of categorisation of data models, definitions of prosopography, and reconciling data collection with scepticism - do you include Zeus/Jesus in your database? #LinkedData
As a user you need to know what you're not going to find in a prosopographical database; how do you define the boundaries, who do you include and exclude, on what basis? Discussing Clergy of the Church of England Database: theclergydatabase.org.uk

Alors, cette carte est tirée des batailles enregistrées dans #Wikidata qui ont une date et une géolocalisation. C'est plus dense sur l'Europe parce que c'est moi qui ait commencé à ajouter ces deux infos systématiquement et que j'ai commencé par l'Europe.
Pourquoi j'ai fait ça ? Parce que j'avais besoin d'une liste de batailles du Moyen-Âge occidental pour debunker une autre discussion du même tonneau, et qu'après j'ai eu la flemme de finir les 10000+ batailles qui ont une entrée mais pas ces deux infos.
Ensuite, les batailles qui ont une entrée (même vide) sur Wikidata sont celles qui ont un article sur Wikipédia (toutes versions confondues). Dont le biais occidentalo-centré est connu (huit des dix plus grosses sont dans des langues européennes.)
