About the Charles A. Hale Fellowship for Mexican History

This fellowship will reward excellence in historical research on Mexico at the dissertation level. It will be awarded at each LASA International Congress to a Mexican graduate student in the final phase of his or her doctoral research in Mexican history, broadly defined. Selection will be based on scholarly merit, and on the candidate’s potential contribution to the advancement of humanist understanding between Mexico and its global neighbors.

Charles A Hale was a distinguished scholar, known for his research on the intellectual history of Mexican liberalism in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Throughout his career, he earned the title of historian of political thought, specializing in Mexican History. His two most significant books are "Mexican Liberalism in the Age of Mora, 1821-1853" (1968), winner of Mexico's Fray Bernardino de Sahagn Prize, and "The Transformation of Liberalism in Late Nineteenth Century Mexico" (1989), winner of the Bolton Prize. These works earned him recognition in Mexico, culminating with the Order of the Águila Azteca in 1993, the highest honor that the Mexican government bestows on foreigners for their contribution to Mexican society.

The Hale family, along with LASA, established a memorial scholarship for the advanced study of Mexican history. The award is based on scholarly merit and on potential contribution to the advancement of humanist understanding between Mexico and its global neighbors.
