SOCIOLOGY 3AC Professor Brian Powers 10/8/07 Lecture 19 Sharing or distribution of lecture notes, or sharing of your subscription, is ILLEGAL and will be prosecuted. Our non-profit, student-run program depends on your individual subscription for its continued existence. These notes are copyrighted by the University of California and are for your personal use only. Sharing or copying these notes is illegal and could end note taking for this course LECTURE I would like to remind everyone about the papers that are due on Wednesday. Papers are due here on Wednesday and they need to be submitted under assignments in bSpace as well. Let us hope it does not take a huge amount of time. In any event, the hard copies need to be brought here to class for in- class submission. When you bring your papers, we ask you to attach tables one and two as part of the package. Attach whatever current version it is; if you have changed your interviewee, we want to see table one and two associated with it. We want to see how you translate and use the data that you report in tables one and two in the body of your written analysis. So please attach tables one and two. Now is the time for me to talk about plagiarism and citation of sources. The university is quite harsh about plagiarism, which is using accidentally, or on purpose, the words or ideas of another and passing them off as your own without attribution. It is a little more complex than simply copying, although copying is the most obvious example. It is plagiarizing to copy notions and ideas from other classmates. We run into those cases and fail people for the entire course who thought, “My friend has reader #3 and I have reader #5, so we can both write the same paper.” They get an F for the course and a referral to student affairs. We live in a society of immense mendacity, it means untruthfulness. Somebody somewhere in this university takes a stand on holding people accountable. You can use other people’s ideas; to take an idea and build on it, to take it to the next level is what you should do anyway. All you have to do is cite the source. It is just giving credit where credit is due, so do it. If you use in-text citations for this paper, ala (Fischer and Hout, 23) or (Berger, 75), then it is okay. We know who these people are. However, in the bigger future, including paper two, we would like to see a little bit more of a formal citation, including a “works cited” page. If you use material outside of this course in paper one, you should cite it, but you do not have to. If you do cite it, then you need to give me a bibliography because you may have invented that work. The assumption in scholarship is that if you say something outrageous, people are going to be shocked and think, “Let us backtrack and check her citations to see whether or not we believe her.” Another issue has come up, which is what a concept is. There seems to be much confusion on concepts.
