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.

In the vein of silliness or light relief (following on from Amy's / Captain's post below) this is how not to advertise a museum, check out the kid's pages in particular...

Good grief!

It would help if they could spell 'museum' too!

I think we ought to pay them a visit. Super-museologists to the rescue!

Oh, I get it. Duh! I'm so naive sometimes. :S

I am trying to stifle a giggle because a couple of years ago there was a similar comment on one of the list-servs - someone complained about the spelling and it was revealed to be a fraud. However I would have thought it would be the Devil as the mascot for kiddies which would have given it away :)

Yeah, yeah, yeah - I'm feeling well stupid! Thing is I really have been to the sort of museums this is satirising. Usually the sort of museums that won't employ you cos they suspect Leicester graduates are a bit 'radical'. ;)
