Gerbrands Lecture

Each year the RCMC organizes a major international conference, coinciding with the annual Gerbrands Lecture, in collaboration with the Fund for Ethnology (FEL), Leiden and other partners.

The 7th Adriaan Gerbrands Lecture is delivered by Professor Tony Bennett

Our year-round schedule of events tailored to academics and students includes lectures, workshops, conferences, master classes and expert meetings. These also include events organized around specific collections (Collection Study Days) and research networks (Labs).
