Open Access Publications from the University of California



The following list of recent master’s theses, like the list of dissertations that appeared in the previous issue of the Journal, is intended to call attention to scholarship that might be relevant to a reader’s particular research topic but that might otherwise be missed. Unlike dissertations, which doctoral candidates are normally required to le with Dissertation Abstracts (and that therefore can be searched for online and readily found), master’s theses can be easily overlooked, especially in California—surprisingly, only a handful of local state universities require their students to le a master’s thesis with a public database, and most seem to make little effort to call attention to their students’ scholarly achievements at any level. thus many of the theses listed here cannot be found on the ProQuest database entitled Dissertations & Theses: The Humanities and Social Sciences Collection. the sole exception to the preceding generalization is CSU Sonoma, which grants an M.A. in Cultural Research Management—a complete list of their theses is available online at http://www.sonoma. edu/anthropology/ma_program_thesis_titles. For that reason, they have not been included here.
