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.

    • If you are citing a source you have used previously in the essay, do you have to cite the entire thing again, or just put a simpler version of it? Or do you put something else entirely?

    • Why is there no comma after the Ibid example on the quiz when there was for the practice quiz (Ibid. p 93. vs Ibid., p 57)? What does Ibid stand for, and and when is an appropriate time to use it?

      Also, is there never a need to add a url when using Chicago format? And how/when do we add editors, publishers, etc. to the citation?

    • If I am citing a really long online article that doesn’t have page numbers, is there a more specific way to indicate where a quote is from other than paragraph or section titles?

  1. During his expedition, it seemed he “imagined himself as Christopher the Christ-bearer, girding the Earth with the gospel”(Armitage 51)

    Armitage, David. “Christopher Columbus and the Uses of History,” History Today, May 1992, pgs. 50-51

  2. This can be seen in the patronizing way Columbus addresses the king and queen as “Your Highnesses, as Catholic Christians, and princes who love and promote the holy Christian faith” (Columbus).

    Columbus, Christopher. “Excerpts from Christopher Columbus’s Log”, Franciscan Archive,1492 A.D.

  3. So as to abbreviate the infinite classifications of colonization, only the primary forms applicable to Columbus’s colonization will be presented: trade colonization, imperial power colonization, extractive colonization, and missionary colonization (Shoemaker).
