The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grants its Humboldt Research Awards in recognition of a researcher's entire achievements to date. They are granted to researchers from abroad to spend a period of up to one year cooperating on a long-term research project with specialist colleagues at a research institution in Germany. The foundation aims to promote international collaboration among scientists and scholars. For the Institute for Latin American Studies, the award granted to Hilda Sabato is an important step in the internationalization of research at the institute.
Hilda Sabato will hold a public lecture on May 22 on "Politics in the Age of the Republic. Reflections on Nineteenth-century Spanish America." Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kocka will give the introduction.
