Graduate Writing Instruction Across the Disciplines

Hello All,

I'm beginning a project that attempts to explore (and starts to define) graduate writing instruction as it is occurring across the disciplines. I'll be conducting a few local interviews, but I'd first like to see what's been written and who might already have experience with this topic. I thought I might call on the expert knowledge of the WPA members as a first resort. Can anyone suggest notable sources that cover this topic? Is there any notable scholarship that takes a WAC approach to graduate student writing instruction?

Many thanks in advance!
