Interdisciplinary Event

38 Speakers

Historical and contemporary topics

How is knowledge validated? What counts (or does not count) as evidence in a given (disciplinary) context? How does this affect practices? How do evidence practices change over time? We propose to re-examine the question of evidence from a different angle: instead of asking what evidence is, we start with the question how evidence is “done” in practice.
