n.paradoxa has a new searchable list of 1171 MA and PhD theses on feminist art/contemporary women artists in 35 countries (1974-present). The list contains links to information pages with abstracts in Open Access Repositories, and full text PDFs. Go to : www.ktpress.co.uk/feminist-art-theses.asp
Given the growing number of MAs and PhDs available in electronic form, we wanted to provide an accessible route to this research on contemporary women artists and feminist art. Careful searching of this project also highlights many trends and tendencies in feminist research across different countries.
This project does not captures “all” theses written on this subject, but is the result of wide searching online. Information about some of the publications which have resulted from this research is also available.
If your thesis, or your students’ thesis, is not listed: please add using the form on our website.
We are aware that there are many art schools or Universities in the world where students may have conducted research into feminist art, but the institutions have not joined any electronic thesis collection or database system. We were also limited by the languages we speak and would welcome more in other languages from around the world.
This project was created by Frances Hatherley and Katy Deepwell at Middlesex University between Jan-May 2015.
