Second Language Writing Series Editor, PAUL KEI MATSUDA GRADUATE STUDIES IN SECOND LANGUAGE WRITING advances scholarship on graduate study and professionalization in the field of second language writing by addressing the ways in which an array of processes and personal interactions shape the experiences of those who are entering the field, as well as those who provide them with guidance and support. By pairing several ted scholars with their former mentees, w established scholars in their own right, GRADUATE STUDIES IN SECOND LANGUAGE WRITING takes select insights gained from that conversation and makes them available to a wider audience, including current graduate students in L2 writing and those looking to enter the field, as well as faculty advisors and university administrators involved in such programs. The chapters in this collection explore the intersections between personal, professional, and institutional demands of graduate study in L2 writing, highlighting the constant negotiation that occurs at different stages in one's academic career. The contributors to GRADUATE STUDIES IN SECOND LANGUAGE WRITING graciously offer their experiences with graduate study in L2 writing and recommendations for navigating its sweeping landscape to help current and future students to find their way to becoming part of the larger disciplinary community.
