In this course, we'll be talking a LOT about plagiarism. As Rebecca Moore Howard haswritten, flagrant plagiarism, on the order of turning in whole papers written by someoneother than you, should be treated as fraud, like falsifying a transcript. And it will, in this class.I don't expect to see that or smaller-scale plagiarism, and I certainly won't be having you runyour papers through Turnitin (unless you want to, as an experimental or performativeexercise). If I question your claim to authorship in some way, I'll talk to you about it.
