This is a statistical visual analysis of the database of 1000+ MA /PhDs in Feminist Art by country and by type. This database lists 1289 theses on feminist art collated from many different sources, completed between 1974-2017. The figures for 2015-2017 are incomplete and will slowly be updated. The database covers 35 countries in the world.
It shows that one third of the material is not available to access directly online i.e. that it has not yet been put in a University online repository or commercial online library/database. In some Universities and countries, deposit in University libraries and collections is mandatory for post-graduates, in others, it is entirely optional.
These charts show that the number of Universities where post-graduate research on feminism has taken place is very variable and diffuse - no University represents a strong concentration in this subject and many Universities had only one or two students completing work in this area at different times.
Only 77 books were known to have been published out of the 650+ doctorates. In some countries, German and Sweden, for example, it is required that the PhD thesis be published as a book. In many other countries, including USA and UK, it takes several years for a book to be published and this is not related to when the degree is awarded. Post-doctoral fellowships help books get published from doctorates, but they are rare in contemporary art, let alone feminist subjects. Most people struggle to publish their book while working in another job, in or outside academia. The years between completion of thesis (pub_date) and publication of thesis (pub_date2) are variable for these reasons.
You can search the actual results by country, by date, by University and by title or author's name in the actual database. Although no subject database was made, it is possible through the title search to identify keywords and topics, especially artist's names where these are given in the title.

If you have a completed MA or PhD thesis on feminist art which was not listed, from any country or University, you are invited to add your work here.
