Events in the month of May 2022

Sunday, May 1, 2022 - Tuesday, January 31, 2023

This research group will have 12 funded participants each to receive $5000 USD and will consist of a total of nine monthly meetings tentatively scheduled to begin May 2022. Focus will be on discussion of a couple of target articles per meeting. On two or three occasions a guest speaker will be attending. The mission of this virtual research group is to catalyze new philosophical interest in foundational problems of cultural evolutionary science by provisioning a small group of excellent philosophers of science, together representing a variety of targeted areas of expertise, with the incentive and the cooperative context to enter this exciting area with ample background information, knowledge of major issues, and a network to aid ongoing collaboration.

Causal claims abound in mixed methods research. However, conceptual and methodological issues relating to causality in mixed methods research have not been systematically examined. There is no consensus about which concept of causality is employed by mixed methods research. For example, Johnson, Russo, and Schoonenboom (2017) argue for a pluralist theory of causation in mixed methods research, while Haggard and Kaufman (2016) suggest a unified (monistic) approach. Nor is it clear which research design is best for the purpose of establishing a causal claim. This workshop aims to examine and explore the concept of causality and approaches to causal claims in mixed methods research. The questions to be addressed include but are not limited to:
Which concept of causality best fits mixed methods research?
Which better captures the concept of causality in mixed methods research: causal pluralism or causal monism?
Does mixed methods research provide a better approach to establishing causal claims than the use of a single method?
How is a causal claim established in mixed methods research?
