Becker Awarded Academy Fellowship

Student Awards and Recognition
September 23, 2015

Graduate student Elisabeth Becker has been awarded a fellowship from the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences (CAAS) for the 2015-16 academic year. Becker, in her fourth year at Yale, studies Muslim communities in European capital cities. Her ethnographic research focuses on how mosque communities respond to stigmatization. Two members of Yale’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences are selected for the $1,000 fellowship each year. Fellows attend meetings of the CAAS and write a paper to be published in the Academy’s journal. The CAAS was chartered in 1799 and is the third-oldest learned society in the United States. Congratulations Elisabeth!
