As we continue to move into the electronic age, theses and dissertations are now being preserved in digital, .pdf format on a great many university websites. Many of these are, fortunately, open to the general public. And as a graduate of both Duke, and a soon-to-be graduate of Baylor’s Ph.D. program, I thought I would share these two resources with you.
DukeSpace – Duke University online dissertations and theses
BearDocs – Baylor University online dissertations and theses
I have set these links to go directly to the Duke Div School and Baylor Religion Department contributions respectively, but do feel free to browse the larger archives.
For what it is worth, I would highly recommend Robert Wallace’s dissertation (which has since been published with Peter Lang in their “Studies in Biblical Literature” series), The Narrative Effect of Book IV of the Hebrew Psalter. I have used it in my own work on the Psalter, and I find it good good, especially given the importance of Book IV in the overall trajectory of the shape and shaping of the Psalter.
If you have other resources from universities of which you are aware, please share them with me and I will add to the list.
