Starting on March 11th 2021, Dr. Laurie Kalb Cosmo will invite a number of inspiring speakers to talk about topical issues in museums. She cordially invites everyone interested to join her in these lectures where the speakers will discuss their work in museums and museum-related projects.

On 8 December 2020, for the final session of Art in the West, Dr. Anna Tummers invited three high-profile guests for a public lecture on new perspectives in art history. With more than 80 students and professors were present and a thought-provoking panel discussion this was a great success.
