Kirstin Wilmot



Kirstin joined CHERTL in 2019 as a lecturer after completing her PhD at the University of Sydney under the supervision of A/Prof Karl Maton. Her thesis, Enacting knowledge in dissertations: An exploratory analysis of doctoral writing using Legitimation Code Theory, explores the disciplinary conventions and knowledge-building practices in doctoral writing across the humanities and social sciences. Kirstin combines her background and love of linguistics (MPhil, Cantab; MA, UCT) with higher education studies in her work on academic literacies. She is passionate about academic writing, particularly doctoral writing, doctoral supervision and disciplinary literacy practices. Her research is aimed at finding ways to make elusive academic literacy practices explicit and demonstrable in order to open access and create opportunities for a greater number of students to succeed in higher education.
