Recipient of IAS Thesis Award 2016

In 2016 I received the IAS Thesis Award of the International Association for Inter-American Studies. The association thereby honored my postdoctoral thesis / book manuscript „Lone Star Vistas: Constructions of Texas in U.S. American, Mexican, and German Travel Narratives, 1821-1861.“ The volume comparatively analyses narrative constructions of Texas as a geographic and social space from 1821-1861 in selected works of travel writing by members of the three major non-indigenous populations of Texas at the time.
