    Lisa Frehill will present a seminar titled "Transdisciplinarity and the Social Science Methodological Toolkit." Transdisciplinarity has become a desirable approach to many of the world's most pressing problems.  The social sciences have much to offer the development of such approaches.  Frehill will review how the social science research methods toolkit can facilitate transdisciplinary research.  Examples of past projects with special attention to data analytics and visualization strategies will illustrate the role social scientists can play in bridge-building across disciplinary boundaries. 12:30, W37E Machmer Hall (ISSR Lab).
