A Working Bibliography of American Doctoral Dissertations in Children's and Adolescents' Literature, 1930-1971.
Lukenbill, W. Bernard
The scope of this bibliography includes almost all areas of childern's and adolescents' literature, including reading interests and pedagogical techniques for teaching literature. It does not include children's materials relating to specific subject areas (e.g., science or mathematics), nor does it contain studies dealing with reading instruction or textbooks and anthologies per se. Also excluded are dissertations which deal with young adult readers above the senior level of high school. Comprehensive coverage of dissertations written about authors or illustrators has not been attempted in this bibliography. An effort has been made to include dissertations of this nature only when they represent those authors and illustrators who would seem to be of general interest to readers but who have not received extensive research attention. Under this restriction, such popular authors as Dickens, Twain, Hemingway, etc. have been excluded. It is believed that this bibliography represents one of the first efforts to compile a comprehensive bibliography of dissertations relating to the areas of children's and adolescents' literature.
