Peabody Museum Research Initiatives
Communities both on campus and further abroad engage in diverse ways with the Peabody Museum both through individual projects and as part of larger long-term programs and teaching activities of the scholarly communities studying its collections.
The Peabody Museum publishes a variety of print and electronic publications relating to archaeology and anthropology. Browse and purchase Peabody Museum Press books in the online Bookstore. Out-of-copyright titles are available here in electronic form. The Museum also publishes the journal RES: Anthropology and Aesthetics,available through the University of Chicago Press, and several electronic journals and newsletters.
The Peabody Museum offers several opportunities for both researchers and artists to engage with its collections. From contemporary artistry to new curatorial projects, we welcome the chance to re-engage with the complex and sometimes difficult history of the collections through the perspectives of our fellows.
Researching the Peabody Collections
The Peabody Museum collections and associated documentation are available for teaching, research, publication, exhibition, replication of indigenous techniques, and artistic endeavors. The nature and conditions of use must be consistent with the Museum's commitment to the care of its collections.
