A new grant funded program, “The Politics of Religion in Africa: Social Movements, Digital Media, and the Global Public Sphere,” run by three people affiliated with Africa Is a Country—Christopher J. Lee (Lafayette College), Daniel Magaziner (Yale University) and myself (The New School)—will explore this theme over the next 18 months.

The award comes from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and is part of its Luce/ACLS Collaborative Programming Grants in Religion, Journalism & International Affairs. Part of the program, which includes two workshops at
The New School and Yale University in the 2022/2023 academic year, includes a fellowship for African journalists. Their work will be published on Africa Is a Country and elsewhere. Therefore, this is a good opportunity to announce the call for applications for the Politics of Religion in Africa Journalism (PRAJ) Fellowship.

African journalists can access submission details and fill out the application form at this link:
