Dr. Harald E.L. Prins served for a second year on an international panel for the Fejos award in ethnographic film for the Wenner-Gren Foundation in New York City. He was also contracted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to contribute on ethnographic photographs for a forthcoming exhibit and authored an essay titled “All Bones and Beads’: Penn’s Surreal Ethnographic Photographs” for an edited volume to be published by The MET/Yale U Press. Dr. Prins co-authored revised editions of two international textbooks in anthropology and is completing a book on indigenous history in coastal Maine, on which he will present at the Transat-lantic Studies Conference in England. Most importantly, he serves as the lead expert witness for the Penobscot Indian Nation in a federal court case defending tribal boundaries and fishing rights. After a mixed ruling by the U.S. District Court in December 2015, the case is being appealed at the First Circuit Court in Boston.
