collection of ten European partner museums reflecting on current issues
concerning the role of ethnographic museums within an increasingly

a post-migrant society.
The Conference, Exhibiting Cultures, Exhibiting Empire, Exhibiting
Europe, is due to start on Wednesday 11 July at 15:30 and will be
followed by an evening drinks reception at 18:00 in the Museum of
Archaeology and Anthropology. There will be a Conference Dinner on
