Start: Oct 8, 2015 12:00:00 AM
Ever since David Cameron's promise to give the British electorate a vote on the UK's membership in the European Union the referendum has been high on the political agenda.

Start: Oct 21, 2015 12:00:00 AM
This conference will consider the historical emergence of a distinct European social imaginary in terms of Europe’s appropriation and internalization of elements from other continents and civilizations. With a focus on the function of ethnographic collections in facilitating this process, it will also investigate the status of such collections today. How does European museums’ production of the exotic retain its appeal, apparently undiminished, when faced today with global audiences and changing attitudes to colonial pasts?
