A Rationale for Events to be Included in all I.E. Competition
Michael Kelley, in a 1984 description of the development of individual events competition, claims the expansion of individual events in the past twenty years has been largely repetitive. He felt any experimentation would require "a radical reformulation of what the larger forensic enterprise is about and should be about" (Kelley, 1984). In considering the individual events paradigm, this conference offers the opportunity to develop a rationale for inclusion of events in individual events competition. In this paper, it seems desirable to clarify my presuppositions about forensics competition, then explore some of the problems in the activity, and finally explore two dimensions needed in a well rounded rationale.
