An annotated essay The question of Wikipedia. Naturally, you are free to read Wikipedia articles if you find that they broaden your background knowledge and in search of further sources. I encourage you to do so. However, you CANNOT CITE A WIKIPEDIA article in the essays as an academic source. That will automatically disqualify the paper. You may, however, quote Wikipedia as the source of a contention that you wish to engage with using other resources. Copyright law allows you to quote from Wikipedia without footnote attribution, but that is very poor practice indeed. I will notice any direct quote which will be reflected in grading. The language, terminology of your composition matters. Use a simple but learned register and style. Grammatical and serious (consistent) spelling errors will detract from the value and grade of the paper. Write an argumentative essay, based on your readings. Try to obtain differing, conflicting, accounts before you draw up your own arguments, judgements. As a rule, only use Hungarian (or other non-English) language sources, if the subject-matter you are addressing, in the narrow sense, is discussed only in that particular source. For the footnotes (compulsory) and bibliography (optional) apply the Chicago (or Turabian) style of academic term papers, theses and dissertations. The style sheet is widely available on the Internet. In footnotes: full name of author in normal order followed by comma and the title in italics and publication details and page number in the footnotes (in shortened form in any subsequent quote from the same source); in the bibliography: author’s name inverted, comma in between, followed by a dot before the book details. Any deviation from the Chicago style sheet manual will affect the evaluation. DO NOT USE EMBEDDED NOTES, use proper footnotes inserted at the bottom of the page. The papers should contain a maximum of 25% of direct quotations from sources. Any text above this proportion must be paraphrased (still attributed). Study the formal Chicago rules for block quotes (longer than three lines) in the text, which are strict (one step smaller size, indentation from both sides, single spaced, no quotation marks, standing letters), though I advise you against the use of long continuous quotes.
