Website Wednesdays: MLA Parenthetical Citations

MLA Parenthetical Citations

Although historians prefer Chicago-style footnotes, another commonly-used style is the Modern Language Association’s parenthetical citations.  It is important to be familiar with various citations styles, and to ask what style is preferred if not mentioned explicitly in an assignment prompt.  For more information on MLA parenthetical citations, I head to the MLA In-Text Citations: The Basics section of Purdue University’s excellent Online Writing Lab.

Best, Dr. Ferdinando
