Daniel Fogt receives grant from Dutch institution

We are happy to announce that Daniel Fogt, PhD candidate in our department, has received a grant from the Catharina Halkes Foundation, a Dutch institution that provides support for scholarship relating to gender and religion. Fogt will use the grant to support to travel to the Netherlands in Summer 2019 to complete research for his dissertation, “The Reformation Across Borders: The Struggle for Purity and Acts of Nonconformity in Netherlandish Refugee Communities, 1565-1600.” Catharine Halkes (1920-2011) was a leading feminist theologian in the Netherlands and professor of feminism at the Radboud University in Nijmegen.
Congratulations Daniel Fogt!
