The American Council of Learned Societies (of which AFS is a member society) has just announced the recipients of most of its 2012 fellowships. These include two AFS members:

  • Ali Colleen Neff, a doctoral candidate in Cultural Studies and Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, who received a Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowship for "Generation 'Fly to Fly': Sounding Bodies, New Cosmopolitanisms and Urban Transformation in the Sounds and Styles of Senegalese Women’s Pop"
  • Candace Slater, a Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of California, Berkeley, who received an ACLS Fellowship for her project "Beset by Marvels: Wonder, Change, and Violence in Northeast Brazil"

Our congratulations go to them both.

ACLS is one of the largest supporters of humanities and social-science research in the world.
