Why and how to incorporate sources (voices) in your text
14 March, 13:15–16:00, room 306
Why do you refer to academic literature in your texts? We hope that the answer is not just “because my assignment says I have to”. This in-depth seminar on making decisions about source use in your texts covers topics such as why to cite and when to cite and also includes summarising and paraphrasing practice. We will NOT go over the mechanics of a certain referencing system. Instead, we will analyse the function of sources in academic texts, so that you can more effectively and elegantly use sources in your own texts. This will help you to communicate more effectively with the people in your field.
