From 9/2015 – 6/2016:

Brian Connolly is researching kinship, religion, and law in the nineteenth-century United States. Exploring six sites where kinship and religion intertwined in the context of the rise of international marriage law (representations of Hindu and Muslim kinship in India and North Africa, slave maroon communities, Mormonism, spiritualism, and ethnography), his study will offer genealogies of secularism, national sovereignty, and modernity.
