Ph.D. Student Anna Marisa Schoen Wins Dissertation Award

Anna Marisa Schoen, Ph.D. recently won the UH Outstanding Dissertation Award. This award was given to only one humanities dissertation across the entire University, along with a $1,000 prize. Schoen’s dissertation examined the concept of the “nation” in pre-modern political theory texts. It argued that the medieval notion of nationalism is in some ways an improvement on our contemporary approach to nationalism.
