Madeleine Elfenbein, 2013 International Dissertation Research Fellowship recipient, contributes to a new forum on The Immanent Frame. Drawing from provocations to think differently about the idea of the Muslim world and the Muslim country, this forum seeks to explicate the various ways in which these terms have been taken up in scholarship and political discourse more broadly. Elfenbein is a PhD candidate in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. For 2017-2018, she is an Early Career Fellow at the Lichtenberg-Kolleg, the Göttingen Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
