BIAAS funded a grant for $5,309 to research the attitudes of English-speaking American colonists towards Austria in the time leading up to the American Revolution. The project involved research in Washington D.C. at the Library of Congress and in New York at the New York Historical Society and Trinity Church. Furthermore, Robinson traveled to Philadelphia to visit the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the American Philosophical Society and to Boston for the Massachusetts Historical Society. The grant resulted in an article entitled “Giving Peace to Europe: European Geopolitics, Colonial Political Culture, and the Foundations of the American Monarchy, 1740-1763” to be published in the April 2016 issues of the William and Mary Quarterly.
Daniel Robinson is a Ph.D. candidate in History at the University of Cambridge writing on North American perceptions towards European and British Foreign Policy.
