University of Toronto Theses Research Relating to Adult Education: An Interdisciplinary Analysis: 1900-1970.
Draper, James A.
The main purpose of the study of theses written at the University of Toronto, is to give examples of research conducted in other disciplines from which adult education might benefit, thus emphasizing the strengthening of the interdisciplinary nature and awareness of adult education. Part 1 contains annotations of 62 theses, conducted between 1912 and 1970, listed alphabetically by author, conducted mainly in the humanities and social sciences (anthropology, education, English, geography, history, library science, planning, political science, psychology, public administration, social work, and sociology) but considered relevant to adult education. Access to the theses in Part 1 is by way of an author index and a critical concepts index. Theses in Part 2 are not annotated but are listed alphabetically by author under three headings: theses conducted within adult education at the Department of Educational Theory for the period 1965 to 1970; theses conducted within the school of social work between 1948 and 1968; and theses conducted within other disciplines between 1900 and 1969. A list of subject matter headings under which the study was initially organized is appended. (SA)
