Mellon Fellow receives 2015 Carnegie Fellowship for work on U.S. policing, race, violence, and global governance
Laurence Ralph, a 2004 Andrew W. Mellon Fellow in Humanistic Studies, was recently named the recipient of a 2015 Andrew Carnegie Fellowship.
An Assistant Professor in the Departments of Anthropology and of African and African American Studies at Harvard University, Dr. Ralph is currently working on “Witnessing Death: Policing, Race, and the Limits of Democracy in the 21st Century.” This project looks at the intersection of the domestic problems of policing, race, and violence and the larger question of global governance. Dr. Ralph is also the author of Renegade Dreams: Living Through Injury in Gangland Chicago (University of Chicago Press).
The Carnegie Fellowships offer awards of up to $200,000 each for work related to challenges to U.S. democracy and international order. Each fellowship is intended to lead to completion of a book or major study.
