I'm not well and yet I'm still blogging. How committed does that make me? ;)
Anyway, while I suffer from woolly brain and other such ailments, here's a few news items to get you all thinking:
BBC NEWS Wales South West Wales Web auctions hit heritage museum
Louvre staff strike over stress
Coin shows Cleopatra's ugly truth
Aboriginal remains tests halted
Go on! Discuss!
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.
