The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is pleased to invite proposals from tenure-track faculty at Brown University for our Faculty Fellows Program for the 2019-2020 academic year. This program supports the development of courses and course components using the Museum’s archaeological and ethnographic collections.
The Museum’s collections include objects from every area of the world, with particular strengths in historic and prehistoric North, Middle, and South America, Africa, and South Asia (visit our Collections page). The Haffenreffer’s exhibition spaces and its CultureLab, both in Manning Hall, are convenient for teaching purposes that might include class visits, student research projects, work on exhibitions, or other assignments as applicants see fit. Current users include faculty and students from Anthropology, History, the Joukowsky Institute, American Studies, and Ethnic Studies. We encourage faculty from all disciplines to consider adding a material culture component to their teaching.
Each fellow will be awarded $500 in research funds that may be used for research or course development expenses. Haffenreffer staff will be available to help identify readings, provide feedback on assignments, and introduce fellows to the collections and museum resources.
Any tenure-track Brown University faculty member is invited to apply here for a 2019-2020 fellowship by April 1, 2019.
Program guidelines and more information can be found on the Faculty Fellowship Expectations and Guidelines form, or on the Faculty Fellows page. If you have any questions, please email HaffenrefferMusuem@brown.edu.
