Ph.D. Candidate John Boyd awarded Dissertation Research Overseas Fellowship

Department of Anthropology Ph.D. candidate John Boyd has been awarded a Dissertation Research Overseas Fellowship from the MSU African Studies Center. This funding is in support of fieldwork taking place in Morocco during the 2024-25 academic year.

During this fieldwork, John will be researching social and youth movements in Morocco through participant observation and interviews with ultras (soccer fan groups) inside and outside of stadiums to further understand how political, economic, and social marginality are embodied, addressed, and combatted publicly and performativity in urban Morocco.
