International symposium to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Sainsbury Research Unit for the Arts of Africa, Oceania and the America

Sainsbury Research Unit, University of East Anglia 
15 - 17 May 2014

Entitled Exhibitingconcepts, experiencing meanings: current and future curatorial challenges, the symposium will bring together curators and specialists from within and beyond the regions of Africa, Oceania and the Americas to discuss the intellectual and other challenges posed by exhibiting and displaying cultural materials from those regions. Academics/curators with responsibility for, or interest in, anthropological, archaeological and art collections from Africa, Oceania and the Americas are encouraged to attend, as this will be an opportunity to assess current thinking and make international contacts. Students in museum studies and other programmes are especially welcome.

Speakers include Emmanuel Kasarherou (Musée du quai Branly/Centre Tjibaou), Joe Horse Capture (NMAI, Washington DC), Kiprot Lagat (National Museums of Kenya), Gaye Sculthorpe (British Museum), Polly Nooter Roberts (UCLA/LACMA), Noelle Kahanu (Bishop Museum, Honolulu), Colin McEwan (Dumbarton Oaks, Washington DC), Boris Wastiau (Musée d' Ethnographie, Geneva), Cristiana Barreto (University of São Paulo).
