This page gives you some more information about me, the researcher carrying out the project:
DR. ASTRID HAAS
I studied English and American Studies, Art History, and Modern History at the University of Münster, Germany, and the College of William and Mary, USA. I received my Ph.D. there in 2007. In 2016, I received a postdoctoral degree from Bielefeld University, Germany.
From 2007-2019, I worked as a researcher and lecturer at different universities in Germany. I taught American and Inter-American Studies in Bielefeld and Wuppertal and Academic English in Gießen. In 2019, I obtained a Marie Curie Research Fellowship of the European Union. This enabled me to join the Institute for Black Atlantic Research at the University of Central Lancashire in the UK as a researcher.
