scientific events

The research and education department initiates, alone or in collaboration, various events which enable the presentation of the current state of research and the dissemination of knowledge to a more or less specialised audience.

  • Each year, international conferences take place on subjects linked to the fields of research of the department; anthropology and the history of non-Western art.
  • Study days are also proposed on more restricted themes.
  • Cycles of conferences are organised jointly with several universities or presented by guest researchers in residence at the musée du quai Branly. 
  • Some educational  seminar sessions held at the museum are also open to the public.
  • Debate-encounters  entitled "The contemporary classics of anthropology" are organised.
  • Learned societies also organise conferences and film screenings.
  • Programmes and recordings for past events.
