The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University and the Harvard Alumni for Oceania are pleased to announce the Harvard Oceanic Collections Engagement Fellowship (HOCEF), a community-driven program for adult members of Oceania and the Oceanic diaspora (including the Pacific Islands, Australia, and Torres Strait Islands, Papua New Guinea, and West Papua) to explore, engage with, and respond to the Peabody Museum’s vast collection of materials from the region.

This HOCEF pilot program will take place between March 2021 and May 2022 and for this first iteration, is focused on the diaspora communities living in the greater Salt Lake City area of Utah, which is home to one of the largest and quickly growing Pacific Islander populations in the United States. Two awardees will receive funding, staff support, and resources to remotely* engage with the Peabody Museum collections and a virtual platform to share their reflections on the collections with the public.
