2016 Dissertation Listings from CAA

Posted in graduate students by Editor on June 27, 2018

My apologies for not posting this much sooner (the listings used to come out in August, and I wasn’t looking for them in December). CH

From caa.news (11 December 2017) . . .

Once a year, each institution granting the PhD in art history and/or visual studies submits dissertation titles to CAA for publication. caa.reviews has now published the authors and titles of doctoral dissertations in art history and visual studies—both completed and in progress—from American and Canadian institutions for calendar year 2016. You can browse by listing date or by subject matter. Each entry identifies the student’s name, dissertation title, school, and advisor.
