Chicago Style Footnotes

We're shifting from MLA to Chicago Style footnotes for the remainder of the semester. To get you up to speed, I've posted some basic instructions here (along with links to quizzes on Blackboard). Please do the quizzes in time for class, and post any questions or confusions in the comments below.

If you DON'T have a question, then instead please post a sentence from essay 1 where you cited a source, along with the relevant Works Cited entry. We'll use those to practice creating footnotes.

    • I am confused about when to use “Ibid” and when to use the shorter citation with the page number and author and title of work but no publishing info. I am also confused what goes where in a Chicago style paper.

    • 1) Does Ibid apply to any source? What does it mean?
      2) When and when not should we include publisher information? What makes a article or source obscure enough to put the publisher information?

    • Why is there a period and a comma after Ibid., p 57. on the practice test but on the graded quiz a question with the same format was only a period?

    • I don’t understand why number 3 on the practice quiz has the publisher information, but 5 does not. Is it because Life is very well known, or is it because it is an article?

    • For the graded test, the second question, I don’t get that why we should have “New York” in the parenthesis since the question doesn’t include the location at first.

  1. The start of this predation can be traced all the way back to Columbus setting out across the Atlantic to introduce Christian values to the Asians on the other side of the world in the hopes of eventually dismantling Muslim trade routes (“Christopher Columbus”).

    was to use the indigenous people as slave labor to extract natural

  4. Columbus did indeed live up to his great stature, however the explorer had also become “the environmental hatchet-man” and the “scape-goat for genocide” (Armitage 55).
