An update on some forthcoming lectures. I'm giving a series of talks this autumn, in Denmark, London and Paris. These include giving the 3rd Annual Moesgaard Lecture at Aarhus University which is about my current GCRF-funded project Architectures of Displacement, and a short talk at the British Museum on the occasion of my receipt of the Rivers Medal.
I'm then giving two lectures in Paris during my Visiting Professorship at the Musée du Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac. I'm also giving four seminars at the Quai Branly, every Thursday during October, and curating a small exhibition in Paris in May 2018. More details are below.
