About Stephanie Maher

Stephanie Maher is a postdoctoral fellow at the African Center for Migration and Society (ACMS) at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. She has conducted ethnographic research on clandestine migration, religious aspiration, and forced repatriation in Senegal (2011–2015), and received her Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology at the University of Washington in 2015. Her current research examines the extent to which immigrants and refugees in Johannesburg use their religious affiliations to access resources such as housing and employment, and how faith-based organisations constitute a new form of political authority in urban South Africa.
