Febe Armanios awarded National Endowment for the Humanities grant
Febe Armanios (History) has been awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipend program in support of her book project, Satellite Ministries: The Rise of Christian Television in the Middle East. The grant provides support for full-time research and writing this summer as she completes work on this long term research effort. Satellite Ministries—the first study of its kind—traces the history of Christian media missions from ca. 1980 to the present, focusing on the tension between channels backed by charismatic and evangelical groups in the United States and Europe and those developed by local Christians in the Middle East.
In addition, Febe has been awarded a Visiting Fellowship from Harvard Law School’s Islamic Legal Studies Program (ILSP) for next fall to work on a new project: Halal Food: A Historical and Legal Exploration.
