SIEF's fiftieth birthday will be celebrated with a special Jubilee Symposium and an Extraordinary General Assembly in Amsterdam. The event celebrates half a century of collaboration, dialogue, and critical debate in ethnology and folklore. The assembly and the symposium will take place in the afternoon of September 12, from 13-18 in the Special Collections (Bijzondere Collecties) of the University of Amsterdam, (address: Oude Turfmarkt 129, next to the Allard Pierson Museum).

The illustrious line-up of speakers for the Jubilee Symposium includes two of SIEF's ex-presidents (Regina Bendix and Konrad Köstlin), SIEF's official historian (Bjarne Rogan) and two special invited guests (Jasna Čapo and Orvar Löfgren). They have all been asked to speak "out of the box," and will move from a reflection on anniversaries and the history of the discipline to new perspectives on everyday life and meditations on the future of the field.
