Lies versus Damned Lies: Evaluating Research Sources
Laura Scudder Conference Room, Roosevelt Hall 121
Mark Twain once quipped, "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.” How do students in the humanities determine “truth” when conducting research among various sources? This workshop will explore the problems researchers confront when different stories emerge from the likes of memoirs, newspaper articles, autobiographies, and historical works.
