PhD Theses in Western Europe

Below is a list of PhD theses in progress in medieval philosophy. I’ve attempted to do for Western Europe what I did in an earlier post for North America, but I am aware that this list is far from complete. After trying to fill in details for several months now, I’ve decided to post the list as it is. I will of course be glad to make additions and corrections.

It would be lovely to carry on and cover the rest of the world – there are doubtless theses underway in Eastern Europe, through the Islamic world, the Far East, South America, and NZ/Australia. But I’m not going to try to go any farther. If others want to send me information about theses in progress, anywhere in the world, I’ll very gladly post it.
