INSPIRATION for change PARENTHETICAL CITATIONS Recently, the history of warfare has been significantly revised by Higonnet et al. (1987), Marcus (1989), and Raitt and Tate (1997) to include womens personal and cultural responses to battle and its resultant traumatic effects. Feminist researchers now concur that It is no longer true to claim that women's responses to the war have been ignored (Raitt & Tate, 1997,p. 2). Though these studies focus solely on women's experiences, they err by collectively perpetuating the masculine-centered impressions originating in Fussell (1975) and Bergonzi (1996). However, Tylee (1990) further criticizes Fussell (1975), arguing that his study treated memory and culture as if they belonged to a sphere beyond the existence of individuals or the control of institutions (p. 6). Moreover, Tylee suggests that.... Punctuation always follows the citation, not the ending word, of a sentence. Exception: block quote. When a citation is mentioned as part of the sentence (sentence citations), the year need not be repeated in subsequent in-sentence citations within same paragraph (see ¶2). However, all parenthetical citations must always include the year (see ¶ 1). Adapted from Purdue University Writing Lab Web site, (April, 2004)
