2015 Visiting Fellows

ILSP welcomes Febe Armanios, Associate Professor of History at Middlebury College, and Boğaç A. Ergene, Associate Professor of History at University of Vermont, as this year’s Visiting Fellows. Armanios and Boğaç Ergene will work on a joint project exploring the evolution of halal food (food that is Islamically permissible) dictums and practices in the Islamic tradition, more specifically, how Muslim jurists—from medieval to modern periods—have negotiated and reinterpreted understandings of halal to address a variety of internal and external challenges.
