Leith Mullings Named an Inaugural Andrew Carnegie Fellow
Distinguished Professor Leith Mullings (Anthropology) was among the 32 scholars named as Andrew Carnegie Fellows in the program’s first year. Each fellowship provides up to $200,000 of support for research and writing.
Mullings’s research focuses on structures of inequality, and on resistance to these structures. Her work ranges from traditional medicine and religion in postcolonial Ghana to urban communities in the United States.
She is the editor and writer of several books, including Let Nobody Turn Us Around: Voices of Resistance, Reform, and Renewal, and served as president of the American Anthropological Association from 2011to 2013.
The Fellows are a group of established and emerging scholars, journalists, and authors whose work “distills knowledge, enriches our culture, and equips leaders in the realms of science, law, business, public policy, and the arts,” according to the press release.
