Faculty Fellows Program

The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is pleased to support the development of courses and course components using the museum’s archaeological and ethnographic collections for tenure-track faculty at Brown University through our Faculty Fellows Program.  The call for applications is typcially announced during the spring semester for couses occuring during the following academic year.  See the navigation bar for the most recent call for applications.

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 (see brown.edu/Haffenreffer) . 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.
