New Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowships for 2012

Richard C. Hunt, President of the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, 1941-1954

Distinct from our other grant programs, the Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowship is strictly provided for the writing-up of research already performed by the recipient, allowing up to $40,000 to be used towards twelve months of continuous writing.

This year we’re pleased to announce four new fellows:

Anand, Dr. Nikhil. Haverford College, Haverford, PA – To aid research and writing on ‘Infrapolitics: Public Systems and the Social Life of Water in Mumbai’

Fogelin, Dr. Lars Edward. U. of Arizona, Tucson, AZ – To aid research and writing on ‘An Archaeological History of Indian Buddhism’

Muehlmann, Dr. Shaylih Ryan. U. of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada – To aid research and writing on ‘When I Wear My Alligator Boots: Narcotrafficking In The US-Mexico Borderlands’

Tassi, Dr. Nico. University College London, London, UK – To aid research and writing on ‘Reassembling The Economic: The Aymara Economic System in the Global Arena’

We’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate these scholars, as well as the nearly 100 others who have received a Wenner-Gren grant so far in 2012!
