Our Research

Philosophy:  The collection is available for undergraduate and graduate research for students interested in Andean and Amazonian ceramics, textiles, music, cultural artifacts such as cooking and work implements, festival and ritual practices, and indigenous art. Items in the collection are paired with select literature that serves as a point of departure for research pursuits. Undergraduate students at Ohio State have either completed or are currently undertaking thesis projects based on their curatorial experiences with the collection.
