n.paradoxa has created a searchable list of 1171 MA and PhD theses on feminist art/contemporary women artists in 35 countries (1974-present).
The list contains links to information pages with abstracts in Open Access Repositories, and full text PDFs.

Given the growing number of MAs and PhDs available in electronic form, n.paradoxa wants to provide an accessible route to this research on contemporary women artists and feminist art.
Careful searching of this project also highlights many trends and tendencies in feminist research across different countries.
n.paradoxa does not claim this project captures “all” theses written on this subject, but they searched widely across the net to find these 1171.
They have also provided information about some of the publications which have resulted from this research.
n.paradoxa would very much like you to check if it contains theses you are aware of and maybe those you have written or supervised.
If not, they invite you to add to this project by filling in the form on their website.
n.paradoxa especially needs your help to map research in many countries like Japan, Russia, Korea, China etc where no English access point is used in national search engines and libraries for etheses or dissertations. They are aware that there are many art schools or Universities where students may have conducted research into feminist art, but the institutions have not joined any electronic thesis collection or database system.
This project was created by Frances Hatherley and Katy Deepwell at Middlesex University between Jan-May 2015.
