KRITIKE Style Guide


1.  We recommend that no “in-text” or “parenthetical” citations should be used.  Use footnotes instead of endnotes.

2. Close-quotes should be placed after punctuations and note numbers should be placed after close-quotes.  E.g.,

“Nietzsche had encountered the idea of the eternal recurrence . . . and did not suppose that it was his own brain child.”1  


3. At the first mention of a reference in a footnote, give the full bibliographical entry with the author’s or editor’s name first before surname.  E.g.,

Book: David Frisby, Fragments of Modernity: Theories of Modernity in the Work of Simmel, Kracauer, and Benjamin (Cambridge, Massachusetts: The MIT Press, 1986), 94-95.
Journal Article: Peter Uwe Hohendhal and Marc Silberman, “Critical Theory, Public Sphere and Culture: Jurgen Habermas and His Critics,” in New German Critique, 16 (Winter 1979), 90.


4. In subsequent mentions of the reference, write the author’s surname, title of the book/article/essay, then page number(s) or section number(s); however, when a reference is repeated immediately, use “Ibid.” or “Ibid., page number(s).”  E.g.,

1 David Frisby, Fragments of Modernity: Theories of Modernity in the Work of Simmel, Kracauer, and Benjamin, 94-95.
2 Ibid., 93.


5. When you are citing only one book by an author and you cite the same source after one or several intervening references, simply include surname, title, and page number.  E.g.

1 David Frisby, Fragments of Modernity: Theories of Modernity in the Work of Simmel, Kracauer, and Benjamin, 94-95.
2 Peter Uwe Hohendhal and Marc Silberman, “Critical Theory, Public Sphere and Culture: Jurgen Habermas and His Critics,” 89.
3 Frisby, Fragments of Modernity, 90.


6. For the “References” at the end of the paper, alphabetized your bibliographical entries with the author’s or editor’s surname first before name.  E.g.,

Carello, C., and Michaels, C., Direct Perception (New Jersey: Prentice-Hall INC., 1981).
Carello, C. and Turvey, M.T., “Rotational Invariants and Dynamic Touch,” in Touch, Representation and Blindness (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2000).
Descartes, Rene, Discourse on Method, Optics, Geometry and Meteorology, trans. by Paul J. Olscamp (Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1965).


NB: Include only references cited in the paper.


7. Italicized all book titles and journal titles in the body of your paper and in the footnotes; while article or essay titles should be within double quotation marks.

8. Use the following style for internet sources:   

News item: Millard, Geoff, “Testimony from Winter Soldier Hearings,” in Democracynow.org <http://www.democracynow.org/2008/3/18/winter_soldier_contd_us_vets_active>, 20 March 2008.
OA journal: O’Leary, Timothy, “Foucault, Experience, Literature,” in Foucault Studies, 5 (January 2008), 5-25, <http://rauli.cbs.dk/index.php/foucault-studies/article/viewFile/ 1407/1510>.
