In 2016 I received the IAS Thesis Award of the International Association for Inter-American Studies. In so doing, he association honored my postdoctoral thesis „Lone Star Vistas: Constructions of Texas in U.S. American, Mexican, and German Travel Narratives, 1821-1861.“ In the book I analyse the ways travelogues from these three countries depicted Texas in the mid-19th century.
I am currently revising my manuscript for publication and am excited to see the book in print next year! I’ll keep you posted when the volume comes out. For more information on my work, see: https://astrid-haas.net/research/
