Description

Attending graduate school presents a wide variety of challenges to both American and international students at U.S. universities. "Learning the Literacy Practices of Graduate School" explores many of those challenges in depth, addressing the textual features and conventions that characterize and underlie the advanced literacy practices at graduate school and examining the unwritten rules and expectations of participation and interpersonal relationships between advisors and advisees and among peers. This volume brings to light the textual, social, and political dimensions of graduate study that tend not to be spoken or written about elsewhere. It offers guidance for how to "do" graduate school.
