DSR Professors, Amira Mittermaier and Kevin Lewis O’Neill have both won prestigious Guggenheim Fellowships.
Amira Mittermaier's fellowship will go towards a teaching-free year in 2022-23 to work on her next book: An Ethnography of God. While telling multiple stories about how Egyptian Muslims relate to, think about, grapple with, and live with (or without) God, the book will also ask broader questions about the stakes of approaching a figure like God ethnographically.
Kevin Lewis O'Neill's award will support his study of clerical sexual abuse in Latin America, with a focus on U.S. priests who moved (or were moved) to Central America to evade suspicion and, at times, prosecution.
