Noah Salomon, assistant professor of religion, has been awarded a portion of a grant from the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft or DFG) to work on a collaborative project on the conceptualization and transmission of Islamic knowledge in contemporary Africa. The grant, directed by Professor Ruediger Seesemann at the University of Bayreuth, will support Salomon's fieldwork and writing. The DFG looks to provide sustainable support for young researchers, the interdisciplinarisation of the sciences and humanities, and facilitate networking in the field of research.
