1. White, Leah. "Competitive Methods of Explaining Rhetorical Methods: Accuracy vs. Distortion in the Description of Scholarly Research Methods in the Crucible of Competitive Forensics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 94th Annual Convention, TBA, San Diego, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-11-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p255146_index.html>
Publication Type: Invited Paper
Abstract: When compared to the communication analysis speeches of the past, the CA’s of today seem to be spending more time on explaining their methods and drawing their conclusions while spending less and less time actually applying a methodological tool to a rhetorical artifact. This paper will consider this trend in relation to such topics as: (1) the historical evolution of Communication Analysis speeches, (2) the reasons for the reallocation of time/priorities, (3) the impact of this trend on student understanding of the process of conducting rhetorical criticism (and the concurrent ability to conduct meaningful analytic dissection), (4) the difficulty of drawing meaningful conclusions and implications at the end of the speech (and the difficulty of connecting these insights to the application step of the process), and (5) the implications of this trend for students who intend to pursue graduate work in rhetorical criticism.

3. Smith, Cindy. "Are International Comparative Methods Different than Traditional Methods or Are They Just Good Methods?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CRIMINOLOGY, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Atlanta, Georgia, <Not Available>. 2019-11-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p201848_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper makes the argument that international, cross national or transnational comparative methods are simply good methods. It further discusses that isolating the multi-country aspect of these methods will further marginalize the methods and relegate it to discussion among a small percentage of researchers. Examples are provided for why we should discuss these methods as mainstream good methods. First, this paper will briefly discuss the development of the literature, clarifying comparative design from comparative methods. Then, it will discuss some of the characteristics of comparative methods that have been touted as unique, such as language and culture. Finally, it makes the case for why they are not – or should not be – isolated as international methods.

Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: An exploratory mixed methods design is used to understand women's experiences with social support and infant feeding methods. Ethnographic methods were used to study two breastfeeding support groups. This was followed by a survey of women about their social support resources and experiences feeding their infants. The researcher returned to the qualitative data to enrich understandings of these findings. This illustrates the power of using mixed methods in research when qualitative research is privileged.

5. Koch, Bettina. "Method and Episteme: Ibn Khaldun and Machiavelli on Methods" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association Annual Meeting, TBA, Philadelphia, PA, <Not Available>. 2019-11-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1117242_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: espite the fact that Ibn Khaldun and Machiavelli are separated by time and culture, scholars have frequently suggested some structural similarities between their works. While, essentially, the overlaps between their theories have their distinct limits, their methodological approaches are remarkable similar—though both claim to be original in their approaches. The paper, first, discusses the methods used by Ibn Khaldun and Machiavelli—in both cases, their epistemology is dependent on their critical approaches to history. Second, the paper aims at uncovering how their methodologies enables them to discover rules of politics that are independent of their cultural origins.
