Citing to Communicate: Who, What, When, Where, Why
All too often, scholarly citation is approached by undergraduates as a frustrating obstacle on the path to completing a writing assignment, rather than as an intellectual pursuit in its own right. This workshop aims to reframe that mindset by demystifying the who, what, when, where, and why of citational practices. No matter the citation style they are being asked to engage with, participants will come away from this workshop with a greater understanding of the purpose behind citation, as well as a pragmatic conception of how to apply that understanding in their own academic writing.
The workshop is appropriate for undergraduates at any level, though first year students who have not yet taken “Introduction to Academic Reading and Writing” may wish to do so first.
