Dissertations Written in Languages Other than English

Doctoral dissertations written in languages other than English may be accepted only by those graduate programs that have made a formal request to, and received approval of the Executive Committee of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences to allow dissertations to be written in a foreign language. Such requests should be granted only if the language in question is recognized by the program’s faculty as an accepted language of critical or theoretical discourse within the program.

For all such dissertations, an abstract in English should be included in the manuscript submitted for deposit with the Graduate School (in addition to the abstract in the corresponding language).  This abstract should be of sufficient length to provide an account of the dissertation’s principal argument, as well as of the work’s constitutive parts.
