The Haffenreffer Museum Announces New Faculty Fellows for 2017-2018

April 19, 2017

The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is pleased to welcome four Faculty Fellows who will be using the museum's collections to support the development of courses and course components for 2017-2018.  The Haffenreffer Faculty Fellows Program provides recipients with $500 for research expences.

This year’s recipients are Kaijun Chen (Department of East Asian Studies), Olakunle George (Department of English), Yannis Hamilakis (Joukowsky Institute and Modern Greek Studies), and Adrienne Keene (Department of American Studies and Ethnic Studies). 

The Haffenreffer 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. 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.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.

We are happy to welcome these new Faculty Fellows to the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology community, and look forward to collaborating with them throughout the year.
