Noah Salomon, Noah SalomonAssociate Professor of Religion, has been awarded a Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies fellowship for the Winter of 2021. During his residency at the University of Bayreuth, Prof. Salomon will advance his effort to understand how Muslim organizations are thinking through diversity in order to create solidarity with communities across the globe. The project not only looks at diverse individuals—Africans, Arabs, and others in plural interconfessional states across the region—but seeks nothing less than an unpacking of an Islamic methodology for grappling with difference. The project builds on Prof. Salomon's ongoing Mellon New Directions Fellowship.
