Quoting and Paraphrasing: Working with Sources in the Social Sciences and Humanities – Online Workshop

August 28, 2020 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm EDT

This online workshop is taught by Dr. Peter Grav

In this 30-minute online workshop for students in the humanities and social sciences, we’ll take a look at how we introduce other people’s research into our writing through quotation and paraphrase. We’ll consider the various levels of citation (from short quotations to large generalizations), the pros and cons of quoting vs. paraphrasing, the reasons we might choose certain structures over others when we integrate the work of others into our writing, as well as strategies to help you craft better paraphrases.

This workshop is prerecorded. The date and timing of this workshop is arbitrary to allow us to add this event to our calendar and registration system. Please ignore the timing as the workshop is currently available to view at any time.
