MPhil and PhD theses

This list of MPhil and PhD theses submitted in the Department of Anthropology since 1927, and of MA theses up to 1969, has been compiled from departmental records, the catalogue card index of theses in the BLPES and (for very early theses) the index in the Senate House library, and the University of London's serial publication, Subjects of dissertations and theses (from 1937). This publication is the most complete source, but it does contain omissions as revealed by the other sources, and it is likely that the following list is still not comprehensive, mainly because theses in anthropology have sometimes been misrecorded under 'economics' or other disciplines. Conversely, the list below may contain some entries which should not have been filed under 'anthropology'. The Department would be grateful if any errors could be communicated to the Departmental Manager.

Theses are listed by year of examination, alphabetically within each year until 1984 and in chronological order of examination since 1985.

Copies of recent theses are held by the LSE Library. Enquiries to library@lse.ac.uk|.
