The Cursed Conclusion

| Learning | May 7, 2016

(I’m taking a sociology research methods class, and one student asks about the use of quotes in our final papers.)

Student: “Is it okay if we use curse words in our papers?”

Professor: “If it’s a quote from your field notes or interviews, yes; you don’t want to misrepresent people. However, you can’t say ‘in conclusion, [Professor] is a dumb-a**’ or ‘[Professor] is a shi**y professor.’”

(The class burst into laughter)
