An ethnographic study of how doctoral students become researchers and writers, this book examines the dissertation writing process from the perspective of students, faculty, and advisors and offers pedagogical implications. Focusing on students from traditionally underrepresented groups-specifically Latino, African American, differently abled, and queer students-this book explores how students from two disciplines (Education and Composition Studies) who were enrolled in a year-long ethnographic research course developed into researchers and writers. The authors demonstrate that taking and writing field notes, conducting and transcribing interviews, and coding and analyzing data are all aspects of the composing process and these emergent developmental stages are key to doctoral students' performance and success.
