We will cover concepts such as the genre conventions of scholarly writing and how understanding those can help you navigate your way through scholarly work, strategies for reading and responding to unfamiliar or difficult scholarly texts, and expectations of professors for how graduate students are expected to use the scholarship they read in class discussions and in the students' writing.
