Joining the Yale MacMillan Center's Initiative on Religion, Politics, and Society as a Junior Fellow!
On September 18th, I was invited to join the Yale Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies's "Initiative on Religion, Politics, and Society" (RPS) as a Junior Fellow, having been nominated by Professor Julia Adams from the Sociology department.
The MacMillan Center is, "the University’s focal point for promoting teaching and research on all aspects of international affairs, societies, and cultures around the world," and it "seeks to make understanding the world outside the borders of the United States, and the role of the United States in the world, an integral part of liberal education and professional training at the University."
I will attend all RPS events this year, and look forward to participating in discussion, interaction with visiting scholars, and learning more about the MacMillan Center's larger projects, as well. In the future, I plan to apply for other opportunities at the center, like the prestigious Fox Fellowship, a graduate student exchange program, as well as the Pre-Dissertation Grant for international research, the International Dissertation Research Fellowship, and the language immersion grants.
