Citing to Communicate: Who, What, When, Where, Why

February 9, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

All too often, scholarly citation is approached by students 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 designed for undergraduate and master’s students at any level.


Facilitator: Dr. Xuan Zhang, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication

Date & Time: Wednesday, February 9, 2022: 10:30am – 12:00pm PT
