The University of Pittsburgh’s Health Sciences Library System provides a service that might best be described as a “dissertation aggregator.” And it’s incredible. One could spend
hours days just looking through it all.
Here is a sample of some of the material included in the latest update, all of which is available for download via ProQuest:
- Haufe, C. (2006). Evolutionary psychology and the future of evolutionary history. Columbia University.
- Schuster, D. G. (2006). Neurasthenic nation: The medicalization of modernity in the United States, 1869–1920. University of California, Santa Barbara.
- Sykes, B.-M. (2006). Questioning psychological health: Contextualizing contemporary psychological theory through historical dialogue between theologians and psychologists, 1940-1960. University of Ottawa.
For future reference, the link has been added to the sidebar, listed under “resources” as “Recent Dissertations in the History of Psychiatry and Psychology.”
