Research Fellowship

December 19, 2023

Congratulations to Ato Onoma who has received a Chancellor Jackman Faculty Research Fellowship in the Humanities (2024-2025).

Twelve-month Faculty Research Fellows hold an office on the 10th floor of the Jackman Humanities Building and are central members of the Circle of Fellows. They are University of Toronto tenured faculty members by the time of their fellowship, chosen for their distinction in achievements relative to their career stage, the excellence of their proposed project, and its relation to the annual theme for 2024-25, Undergrounds/Underworlds.

His research project – Mobility, Faith, and Segregated Cemeteryscapes – asks why some towns in Senegal operate segregated cemeteries that each receive the dead of only one faith while other localities privilege open cemeteries that receive the dead of all faiths.
