The Future of Ethnographic Museums
A conference at Pitt Rivers Museum & Keble College, University of Oxford

PRMconference2013_Page_01On July 19-21, 2013 the University of Oxford held a major international conference on ‘The Future of Ethnographic Museums’. More than 230 participants from 26 different countries came together to hear lectures from leading figures in the study of museums and anthropology, opportunities for debate and discussion. Ten of the conference lectures that average about 45 minutes each were recorded.

NCPTT strives to record each of our conferences and we understand the work that it takes to do this.  We applaud the fantastic job done by the organizers of the Future of Ethnographic Museums for recording these lectures and making them available to future researchers, curators, and conservators. Some of the recorded lectures include “What Makes Exhibitions Ethnographic?” by Corinne A. Kratz and “The Future of the Museum is Ethnographic” by Kavita Singh.

Each of the recorded lectures can be found at; In addition to the lectures the conference also features videos and the conference programme, a publication is forthcoming.
