Ata Anzali receives award from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation

Ata Anzali (Religion) has been awarded a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation for a project titled A Comparative Exploration of Sufi Sacred Spaces: The Cases of North India and the Balkans. The grant will fund travel to the Balkan countries of Albania, Bosnia, and Kosovo and to northern India to enable Ata to learn, first-hand, about the lived experience of Muslim devotees in Sufi sacred spaces. The goal of this project is to help Ata complement his text-based understanding of the rich tradition of Sufism and thus enhance his ability to teach about it.
