International Café: "Quoting and Paraphrasing with Style"

March 30, 2018 - 3:30pm

Have you ever thought that the quotes you’ve incorporated into your paper sounded strange alongside your own writing? Were you ever unsure if you were paraphrasing or plagiarizing a text you read? This session focuses on strategies for quoting and paraphrasing texts—how to choose quotes that support your ideas, how to smoothly blend another author’s words with your own, and how to paraphrase others’ ideas in your own “voice”.

Participants are encouraged to bring a piece of their writing in order to apply “quoting and paraphrasing with style” to their own projects.
