HIST 2900: The Historian's Craft

History Department Guidelines

The History Department at WMU requires the use of the Chicago Manual of Style when citing your sources.  However, sometimes it permits students to use Kate Turabian's A Manual for Writers of Research  Papers, Theses and Dissertations, which is a simplified version of the Chicago Manual.  If in doubt--ask your instructor!
