University distinguished professor of anthropology publishes chapter

Submitted by Laszlo Kulcsar

Harald E.L. Prins, university distinguished professor of anthropology, published a chapter in the 2017 Metropolitan Museum of Art volume Irving Penn: Centennial.

His chapter, "Ethnographic Portraits, 1967-71," concerns this world-famous 20th-century artist's iconic photographs of indigenous peoples in Benin, Sahara and Papua New Guinea. The book is published in conjunction with this monumental exhibit's opening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The show will travel to the Grand Palais in Paris, and a French translation will be published by the Réunion des musées nationaux.

He also published a review essay on "The North American Journals of Prince Maximilian of Wied" (1830s Upper Missouri) in the journal Ethnohistory.
