Report My 6 month trip included a research stay at the Library of Congress, 5 talks at US Universities (UCLA, UT-Austin, UV-Wise, Cumberland University and AU in Washington, D.C.) and 1 conference participation at CMU. I had the opportunity to present my research to renowned scholars and experts on my topic across the country, like Stanford University. Thus, I was able to get valuable feedback on my dissertation project, established great contacts, and had access to significant sources. Even though I planned the trip on my own, I would not have been able to realize this academic and personal journey without the support of the RS+.
