To Add to Ceri's light relief post I was pointed in the direction of a website in the US called 'The Onion' which you may be familiar with already. I just typed in the word 'museum' and there are some very funny stories - One of my favourites - the featured headline 'Wax museum fire results in Hundreds of new Dany DeVito statues'
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.
