Mon, March 26, 2012

Dr. Afsar Mohammed has been selected to recieve a  senior fellowship from the American Institute of Indian Sutdies for  the 2012-2013 academic year. The selection committee  reviewed an  extremely competitive field of proposals and was only able to select a  small number of fellowship recipients. Dr. Afsar recieved this fellowship for his current project on  various  public rituals and narratives connected to an early Sufi in South  India, and he will investigate how these classical Sufi networks  extend into the times of a contemporary religion in the wake of  globalization.
