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.
