Explore the Richness and Diversity
of the World’s Cultures!
The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is Brown University’s teaching museum. A resource across the university, we inspire creative and critical thinking about culture by fostering interdisciplinary understanding of the material world. We provide opportunities for faculty and students to work with collections and the public, teaching through objects and programs in classrooms, in the gallery in Manning Hall, and at the Collections Research Center.
The Haffenreffer Museum is pleased to announce the appointment of Robert Preucel as its new Director beginning July 1, 2013.
Bob comes to us from the University of Pennsylvania where he was Chair of the Department of Anthropology, Curator-in-charge of the American Section at the Penn Museum, and Director of the Center for Native American Studies.
Bob is a Southwestern archaeologist well known for his work on the archaeology of the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. For the past seventeen years, he has been conducting collaborative research with the Pueblo of Cochiti in New Mexico focusing on the history and cultural significance of Kotyiti Pueblo, their mesa top village occupied just after the revolt.
