MEG Activities

MEG functions as a lively, informal group of peers who hope to learn from each other’s experiences.

Members play an important role in the development of this exciting area of museum research and practice, and members of the committee are always keen to receive suggestions for new activities from members.

At present, the main activities of MEG include:

  • Publishing the Journal of Museum Ethnography, a prestigious annual journal.
  • Organising an annual spring conference, normally hosted by a member institution.
  • Coordinating in person events. These include museum visits and new exhibitions, normally with talks or tours by their curators and study days on particular topics.
  • A recently established online Keeping Connected series – a safe space to share best practice about key challengers facing the sector.
  • Circulating a regular newsletter to members by email
  • Maintaining the MEG website
  • Maintaining the Repatriation Resource.

MEG keeps in touch with its members through the e-newsletter, but Blog postings appear more regularly, and notifications of these are circulated through Twitter and Facebook.
