"Plagiarism and Student Engagement: Making Productive Connections" Dr. Rebecca Moore Howard, Professor of English, Syracuse University
Thursday, May 5, 2011
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Kelley Presentation Room
The Faculty Development and Evaluation Committee is happy to invite you to what promises to be a provocative conversation about authorship, agency, and academic integrity. Dr. Rebecca Moore Howard, a leading scholar on plagiarism and authorship, will be presenting recent findings from the Citation Project, "a multi-institution research project responding to educators' concerns about plagiarism and the teaching of writing" (http://www.citationproject.net ).
Dr. Howard's work has been featured in numerous journals and publications. Her groundbreaking book Standing in The Shadow of Giants: Plagiarists, Authors, Collaborators surveys theories of authorship from Classical studies to the present and considers the range of responses, productive and punitive, to perceived instances of plagiarism.
This event is co-sponsored by the Faculty Development and Evaluation Committee, the Humanities Institute, the Office of Academic Engagement, the Core Writing Program, Center for Academic Excellence, The DiMenna-Nyselius Library, and the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.
All full-time and affiliate faculty and staff are welcome and encouraged to attend. For related information, please check out http://librarybestbets.fairfield.edu/academicintegrity then click on the FDEC/Humanities Institute Grant tab.
