At the last Interpretation/Representation Research Group meeting we had a really good discussion about 'interpretation', and - in particular - the deconstruction of so-called scientific 'facts'. It reminded me of a really interesting blog, Say It Ain’t So, Joe: things you must unlearn before your die, which exists to debunk some of those historical, cultural and political myths which are accepted, erroneously, as fact.
Well worth a look.
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.
