Kirk Dombrowski traveled to Providence, RI to work with colleagues at the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology at Brown University from 27-28 February 2013. En-route from New York, he stopped at the Collections Research Center in Bristol, RI to tour the Museum's Arctic Collections and visit with museum staff. Following that, he continued on to campus where he gave a public lecture on "Understanding Arctic Communities on the Brink of Self-Governance". At this presentation, Dr. Dombrowski discussed the results of research by an anthropology team in the new indigenous autonomous area of Nunatsiavut, located in Labrador, Canada. After the presentation, Dr. Dombrowski attended a public reception and dinner with faculty, staff and friends. The following day, Dr. Dombrowski led a Brown Bag Lunch Seminar entitled "Reaching 'Hard-to-Reach' populations for research in Anthropology, Sociology, and Public Health" before he departed for his return to New York.
