H-Midwest maintains this list as a way for any humanities graduate student to share info about any Midwest-focused theses and dissertations. We are interested in compiling a list of graduate research focused on the Midwest region as a whole, comparative studies, and research concentrating on Midwestern sub-regions (Great Lakes, Great Plains, et al), states, cities, or localities. We also welcome information about non-thesis applied projects in digital humanities, museum studies, etc. This list will help researchers of the Midwest stay informed about what scholarship is being developed. Naturally, we would encourage any dialogue about emerging Midwest scholarship to take place here at H-Midwest.
There are two ways you can have your research added to the list. One way is to completely fill out your H-Net profie including the part about dissertations and theses. The other option is to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you send an email, please format the info as follows:
- Last name, First name
- Project title
- Type (e.g. M.A. thesis, Ph.D. dissertation, et al.)
- University Affiliation, and Department
- Anticipated completion date
