Christian professor who donned head scarf gets UVA fellowship named for Muslim

From Chicago-

The former Wheaton College professor who sparked controversy at the evangelical Illinois school for saying Muslims and Christians worship the same God has earned a University of Virginia fellowship named for a 19th-century Muslim leader.

Larycia Hawkins will be the Abd el-Kader visiting faculty fellow at the University of Virginia until August, an affiliation she hopes to renew in the fall while she looks for another job as a tenured political science professor. She said the fellowship was the only opportunity she applied for after learning in January that Wheaton was taking steps to fire her.
