After a temporary hiatus of three years I am delighted to announce that Museological Review is back, returning with a special issue (12) which comprises the proceedings of the Material Culture, Identities and Social Inclusion conference held at the University of Leicester in February 2006.
A list of contents can be found on the Museological Review website. Copies may be ordered from the University of Leicester bookshop at £8 per issue, plus p&p. More details can be found here. N.B. Conference delegates will receive a free copy shortly (postal strikes permitting!).
Look out for the next issue (13) during Autumn 2007, which will coincide with Museological Review becoming an biannual, online journal.
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.
