Abstract

As the INT community matures, one hears increasing calls for the field to become more scientific, and even prior restraint in which researchers avoid a project entirely out fear it wouldn't be sufficiently scientific. In this position paper, I'll argue that science, and more generally rigor, are not well served by a discourse that labels things as "science" and "not science." In particular, I will argue that we need to open ourselves to the adoption of methods from the arts, including case studies and the practice of studio critique.
