Wenner-Gren supports research in social/cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological/physical anthropology, linguistics, and closely related disciplines.
Wenner-Gren’s newest grant program, the Fejos Postdoctoral Fellowship in Ethnographic Film, allows an early-career academic to pursue the completion of a work of ethnographic film. We are pleased to present a trailer and abstract for Fejos Fellow Dr. Roger Canals, who received the grant aid to filmmaking on ‘Afro-Venezuelan Rituals in Barcelona: A Comparative Study of Religious Nomadism through Film’.
Diana Szanto was awarded the Dissertation Fieldwork Grant in May 2010 to aid research on ‘Engaging with Disability: NGOs between Global and Local Forces in the Post-Conflict Reconsolidation of Sierra Leone,’ supervised by Dr. Gabor Vargyas. In 2015, she received the Engaged Anthropology Grant to follow-up her research and share her results with the community that hosted her.
