Mike/Julian thanks!  Here is the piece, Alfredo.  Agree with the points Julian and Lynda made. I think the 2002 article is still relevant but perhaps old news to this community.  Attaching as requested.

Some context relevant to the article: I had the real pleasure of co-designing and co-teaching the qualitative research courses strand for many years with Fred Erickson, a wise voice in these matters. We were both housed in the Social Research Methodology program at UCLA where the quant/qual discourse/debate was challenged in the overall program, in courses, and in our own training and work—no divisions encouraged or closing of doors, as Julian wrote.


(I’m currently teaching a course in Advanced Qualitative Methods here at Cal and will encourage students to view/engage this conversation.)  Kris
