Anna Mansson McGinty named Global Studies Research Fellow

Anna Mansson McGinty will be one of five Global Studies Research Fellows for the academic year of 2016/2017. Her project “Belonging and ‘Making Home’ among Muslim American Youth: Diverse Identities, Geographies and Politics, draws on feminist, geographical, and anthropological perspectives and is informed by a feminist interest in the embodied practices and experiences of formulating multifaceted identities and “making home” in the specific social and political context of Milwaukee, a mid-sized, segregated city in the American Midwest, as well as in the face of racist and Islamophobic discourses and political rhetoric.
