Dr. William (Bill) Dressler is a professor emeritus at the University of Alabama. He is a biocultural anthropologist who pioneered the cultural consonance method. On this episode, he talks with Chris and Cara about the three ‘c’ words: cultural consonance, consensus, and competence as well as his thoughts on mixed methods in anthropology to kick off our special series on Methodological Pluralism in Human Biology. You can find his most recent book “Culture and the Individual: Theory and Method of Cultural Consonance” here: www.routledge.com/Culture-and-the-…ok/9781629585192

As a special treat, the intro and outro feature Dr. Dressler playing the 1st cello suite of Prelude by Bach.
