MEG Annual Conference

ConferenceThe Museum Ethnographers Group aims to raise standards in professional practice by enabling the exchange of information between specialists and generalists. The annual spring conference is the key event at which many of these exchanges take place, and is an active interface between museum professionals and university-based researchers.

Usually hosted at a UK museum, the conference involves the presentation of papers around a set theme, as well as a more general session, at which members present their work-in-progress. In recent years, a tradition has been established whereby the final session of the conference is given over to a discussion of issues arising from the conference. The conference is also the occasion when MEG holds its Annual General Meeting.

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. During the evening, on the first day of the conference, there is usually a drinks reception in the museum, followed by a dinner elsewhere.
