Keynote Lecture: The Mixed Methods Movement and Multidisciplinary Research H. Russell Bernard, PhD One characteristic of a normal science is the easy, unpretentious collection and analysis of qualitative and quantitative data. Forcing social scientists to choose between qualitative or quantitative weakens their ability to study important problems. The mixed methods movement in the social sciences is this generation’s attempt to deal with the qual-quant wars. No one controls all research methods, but everyone can learn enough to work in multidisciplinary teams that can study and contribute to solving important problems. Multidisciplinary, however, must never mean undisciplined. Session 4: Working in Interdisciplinary Teams Panel Panel speakers: John (Mac) Marston, PhD – Boston University, Assistant Professor of Archaeology
