scientific events

The Research and Education Department initiates various events, either alone or as a collaborative effort, which present an overview 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 Department's research fields, i.e. Anthropology and the History of Non-Western art.
  • Study days are also offered on more restricted themes.
  • Conference cycles 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 of past events.
