Plagiarism appears to be an act that some in academe cannot resist duplicating.
Mustapha Marrouchi, a professor of postcolonial literature at the
University of Nevada at Las Vegas, is facing accusations of dozens of
acts of plagiarism over the past 24 years, even after twice previously
being publicly called out for lifting the words of other scholars.
The documented instances
of Mr. Marrouchi’s quoting the works of others without attribution
include passages in his books, essays, blog posts, and course
descriptions. They begin with his 1990 dissertation as a doctoral
student at the University of Toronto, extend through his four years on
the faculty of Louisiana State University’s English department, and
continue up through three journal articles published last year.
