The John W. Kluge Center is pleased to announce that Anthony Cerulli, Director of the Center for South Asia and an Associate Professor of South Asian Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has been selected as the 2020 David B. Larson Fellow in Health and Spirituality. This fellowship, made possible by a generous endowment from the International Center for the Integration of Health and Spirituality (ICIHS), is named in honor of the ICIHS’s late founder, David B. Larson, an epidemiologist and psychiatrist who focused on the role of understudied spiritual factors in prevention, coping, and recovering from illness.
While in residence later this year, Anthony Cerulli will work on the project, “Technologies for the Body-Mind-Spirit: Ayurveda and Spiritual Wellbeing in America.” Anthony hopes to develop his project’s digital and online archive, which will chart and explain the evolution of Ayurveda in the United States as a spiritual tradition of healing.
This fellowship program, along with the Kluge Fellowship, the Kluge Fellowship in Digital Studies, and the Jon B. Lovelace Fellowship for the Study of the Alan Lomax Collection, will be open this year to applicants starting April 15th, with a July 15th deadline.
