Can data make room for uncertainty? And if so, what kind? In this talk, Miriam Posner will discuss some humanists’ concerns about the growth of data-driven scholarship.

They point to real epistemological differences between „data“ as the term is used and the traditional practices of humanistic scholarship. Understanding this tension can help us understand both data and the humanities more fully — and point to some exciting future directions for data-engaged scholarship.
