MEG Conference: Registration opens

Museum Ethnographers' Group Annual Conference

Collections, Collaboration and Communities

Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 April 2014

University of Aberdeen


Registration closes on 3 March

We hope that many of you can join us in Aberdeen for this year’s conference. We have many excellent speakers and are looking forward to a thought provoking and stimulating few days exploring and addressing the theme of collections, collaboration and communities.

Museums now embrace opportunities to work with a range of communities and to develop a variety of partnerships. Recent research has also re-conceptualised the relationships between objects and between objects and people. This conference will explore how museum collections can inspire and benefit from a range of collaborations, and the opportunities brought by different disciplinary perspectives.

As well as these formal elements, the conference is an excellent opportunity for networking, or as we like to think of it, making new friends and catching up with old ones. There will therefore be a conference dinner and as we are in Scotland a traditional ceilidh to enjoy. There will also be the opportunity to visit the exhibition ‘Fiji, Scotland and the making of Empire’ in King’s Museum.

The programme is in the stages of being finalised. For more information, to keep up-to-date and to register for the conference, please visit the University of Aberdeen conference page.
