The Art of Fudging
Davidson, Cathy N.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n17 pB5 Dec 2008
This article talks about disciplinary fudging. The author points out that one fudges for complex and comprehensible reasons. However, she wonders at what point one becomes enough of an insider in a discipline to know how to gloss over the nuances of a complicated, inconvenient, or controversial topic.
