Western European Dissertations on the Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Languages and Literatures: A Retrospective Index.
Chatham, James R.; Scales, Sara M.
This bibliography presents a retrospective index of 6,050 doctoral dissertations, accepted by Western European universities, on Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian languages and literatures, part of a larger, world study of that field. The bibliography's scope is limited to doctoral dissertations on the Romance languages and dialects of Portugal, Spain, and Ibero-America and on the literatures written in these languages. Also included are dissertations on the relationships between these literatures and those of other nations, and on literary portrayals of Hispanic or Luso-Brazilian countries, customs, or people in other literatures. Some works on the literatures and cultures of Iberian and Ibero-American ethnic minorities, studies of bilingualism and pedagogy involving the languages, aspects of language teaching and learning, historical documents, library collections and archives, and political and cultural institutions are included when felt to be relevant. An introductory section discusses inclusion criteria, information on organization, and acknowledgements. A list of academic institutions, with addresses, and a list of published sources consulted follow. The main section consists of a listing, alphabetical by author, of the dissertations and a subject index. (MSE)
