My research explores the use of digital humanities methodologies in the interpretation of Korean cultural heritage for English-speaking audiences. In particular, I study the ways in which databases, primarily those that use semantic data (RDF, graph data), and collaborative tools, such as wikis, can aid in the areas of translation and education.
