Curator’s Notebook: Lunchtime Lecture Series
The tradition of research at the Canadian Museum of Civilization dates back 100 years, when its forerunner — the Anthropology Division of the Geological Survey of Canada — was established. For the past 20 years, members of the Museum’s curatorial staff have hosted lunchtime conferences with a view to exchanging ideas, collections and questions with fellow researchers and Museum visitors. This winter’s line-up features several distinguished speakers, chosen from among the Museum’s curators and research fellows. We welcome one and all to these lectures — pull up a chair, indulge your mind, speak your piece. Each presentation lasts 30 minutes, and is followed by a question-and-answer period.
