On 7 Nov: Discourse in PhD examiners' reports


1 November 2013

Two University of Sydney academics and a guest lecturer are presenting their paper, Evaluation and instruction in PhD examiners' reports: a discourse perspective, which examines the discourses of evaluation and instruction in 142 PhD examiners' reports on theses submitted at a university in New Zealand.

They hope to draw to raise examiners' awareness of the implications of the language they use when writing their reports as well as draw thesis supervisor and institutional attention to the ambiguities inherent in this underexplored genre.
