   schema:reviewBody ""The tremendous growth of scientific, technical, and cultural disciplines over the past century has profoundly affected our daily lives. However, the processes of enculturation that have helped to form these disciplines, such as sites of graduate education, have received limited attention. In Writing/Disciplinarity: A Sociohistoric Account of Literate Activity in the Academy, Paul A. Prior explores this intersection of writing and disciplinary enculturation through ethnographic case studies. These case studies provide the most comprehensive descriptions available of the lived experience of graduate seminars, combining analysis of classroom talk, students' texts and professors' written responses, institutional contexts, students' representations of their writing and its contexts, and professors' representations of their tasks and their students." "This blend of research and theory will be of great interest to scholars and students in many disciplines, including rhetoric, writing across the curriculum, applied linguistics, English for academic purposes, science and technology studies, higher education, and the ethnography of communication."--Jacket." ;
