The editorial and advisory board of H-Education wants to recognize and congratulate newly-minted PhDs and EdDs and others who have taken for their research interest topics in educational history. All of the following dissertations/theses were by scholars completing PhDs or EdDs or equivalent doctoral degrees in 2013 (a few are dated 2012 and 2014), according to the ProQuest database. The usual caveats apply: your definition of educational history may not include/exclude the same titles from the database; titles can be misleading; I only read English, but would welcome references to doctoral works in other languages (there are two titles in other languages in the listings this time). We'll gather cites for other 2013-14 completed doctoral dissertations/theses for posting in the next batch of these, which will happen on/near the summer solstice (that's the "quarterly" I'm following--equinoces and solstices--handy as any other system, and guarantees that they won't coincide with the first of the month new article listings we already do). Please also submit any corrections to the entries below. Enjoy. And to the 17 authors listed, congratulations. compiled by Penny L.
