"Evidence: The Use and Misuse of Data"
A Virtual Symposium hosted by The American Philosophical Society 
June 8-12, 2020

Inspired by its 2021 exhibition, Dr. Franklin, Citizen Scientist
the American Philosophical Society Library & Museum is hosting a weeklong
symposium Evidence: The Use and Misuse of Data. This international
symposium is deeply interdisciplinary and features papers that consider the
ways evidence is used in the history of science, literary analysis, digital
humanities, the social sciences, and more.

The symposium will be held June 8-12, 2020 via Zoom. Sessions will take
place daily at 1:00pm EDT or 3:00pm EDT. Each session will include brief
presentations by the conference participants, comments by a moderator, and
a live Q&A session. Pre-circulated papers will also be available for
download to registered participants.

The event will kick off on Monday, June 8, at 1:00pm EDT with an opening
discussion with Drs. Richard Shiffrin (Indiana University,
Bloomington), Stephen
Stigler (The University of Chicago), and Kathleen Hall Jamieson (The
University of Pennsylvania) on their paper, “The Weighing of Evidence
Requires Expert Judgment and Consensus.” The discussion will be moderated
by Linda Greenhouse (Joseph Goldstein Lecturer in Law, Senior Research
Scholar in Law, and Knight Distinguished Journalist in Residence at Yale
University and President of the American Philosophical Society).

The symposium will conclude on Friday, June 12 at 3:00pm EDT with a final
discussion featuring Drs. John R. McNeill (Georgetown University) and Robert
M. Hauser (Executive Officer, American Philosophical Society), in
conversation with Dr. Patrick Spero (Librarian & Director, American
Philosophical Society Library & Museum).

The symposium is free of charge and open to the public, though registration
is required to attend and to access the papers.

or individual sessions, please visit the symposium website

ADHO is pleased to announce that this summer we will hold a virtual version of
the DH2020 conference. Our goal is to offer authors whose works were accepted
for DH2020 the opportunity to share their papers, posters, and presentations
publicly via Humanities Commons (https://hcommons.org/), an open-access platform
for networked humanities scholarship, as well as to provide additional forms of
interactivity and participation. The majority of the conference will be
asynchronous in order to allow as many members of our global scholarly community
to take part as possible; some concurrent conference events will take place
during the week of July 22-24, when the in-person conference was to have

  *   Community awards
  *   Forum discussions

In addition, we will work with COs, AOs, SIGs, and affinity group members to
