Object Study Gallery: Teaching With the Collection

Sponsored by: Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History

Each semester-long installation offers a glimpse of one of the many ways the Museum’s collections are integrated into the intellectual life of the University. This study gallery is an important part of the Peabody’s effort to provide opportunities to teach with real objects and specimens, experiment with curatorial approaches, and spark interdisciplinary dialog across the University.
The objects on view here have been selected for the following Yale University courses by faculty in the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, Yale School of Art, and the departments of Anthropology, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, and History.
