  • About

    John's primary research interests lie in written and spoken academic discourse. These interests are closely connected with his work in enhancing the advanced academic literacy of graduate students, both international and domestic. 

    Although he retired in 2007, he remains active. In the University of Michigan Press, he published "Navigating Academic: Writing Supporting Genres" and "Creating Contexts: Writing introductions" (both with Chris Feak), and in 2012 (also with Chris Feak) a third edition on the popular "Academic Writing for Graduate Students".
