I am hapy to consider new doctoral theses on any area broadly related to my own research. PhDs can take the forms of: a full-length academic analysis; a critical edition with a substantial analytic introduction; a practical PhD in translation, comprising a substantial piece of translation and an academic analysis of the process; or PhD by published works.
