Hi Derek,


        I don't know if it fits your criteria, but are you aware of HOPL
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Programming_Languages)? This
conference happens every 15 years. HOPL of year X talks about programming
languages created up to year X - 11 (or so). The proceedings contains papers
telling the history of individual programming languages, signed by the authors
of these languages themselves (well, I guess that's an "edited collections of
papers on different languages", but it's still super cool).


Regards,


Fernando
[HOPL is great and the papers are refereed, but they're papers, not books
or theses. I don't ever recall seeing a thesis on specific programming
languages, but you could certainly get a few out of the tangled history
of Lisp. -John]
