Michael McNally is recipient of a Luce/ACLS Fellowship in Religion, Journalism & International Affairs

5 April 2021

Michael McNally, John M. and Elizabeth W. Musser Professor of Religious Studies, has been awarded a fellowship from the Luce/ACLS Program in Religion, Journalism & International Affairs. This prestigious program aims to deepen public understanding of religion by advancing innovative scholarship on religion in international contexts and by equipping individual scholars and institutions of higher education with the capacities to connect their work to journalism and the media and to engage audiences beyond the academy. This support will enable Professor McNally to complete a book exploring Native American religions through the lens of their engagement with contested sacred lands and other current issues, rethinking the definitional conundrum of Native “religion” with the international possibilities of the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
