It's got nothing to do with museums, museum studies or being a PhD student, but I took some (not very good) photos of the lunar eclipse tonight, and - for want of anything else to blog - I thought I'd share them with you all. Unfortunately my camera zoom isn't very powerful and I didn't get a lot of the detail, including the redness, but they're still pretty cool (in my humble opinion). :)
Here they are:
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.
