ACLS Fellowships to Ghachem, Sharafi

We've learned that the American Council of Learned Societies has awarded residential fellowships to two legal historians: Malick Ghachem (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and our own Mitra Sharafi (University of Wisconsin).

Ghachem will be in residence at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study during academic year 2018-2019, working on a project titled "In the Name of the Colony: The Revolt against the Indies Company in Haiti, 1720-1725."

Sharafi will be in residence at the National Humanities Center during academic year 2020-2021 and plans to work on "Fear of the False: Forensic Science in Colonial India."

You can see a full list of the fellows here, as well as read abstracts of their projects. Congratulations to all!
