I'm going to republish posts that contain discussion points, just in case people missed them first time round. First up is Kouros' post about fieldwork; originally posted to the blog on 30th August.
just to say my hello
Hope all things are going well for you.
I am working for a part of my fieldwork under very hot weather!
what is your feeling about fieldwork in a research?
thank you for all things and congratulation for the new blog of the phd students.
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
