Presentation Description

With new electronic media enabling the wholesale use of others’ writing as one’s own, and other electronic media rising to combat the scourge, the subject of plagiarism is achieving a new prominence in discourse about teaching writing. The general trend of ideas seems to favor new ways to catch and punish violators of intellectual property rights. While many may agree with such policies for professional writers, this presentation offers a different theoretical and practical context for working with plagiarism with writing students.
