BROWN BAG SEMINAR
Wednesday 28th November.
1pm LR1 Princess Road East
In this seminar David Unwin will summarise his research goals, highlight some past achievements and outline some current and future projects. In addition to providing a brief overview of what we know about pterosaurs (pterodactyls) the seminar will also introduce the audience to the materials, techniques and methodologies of palaeobiology and the philosophical framework within which this discipline is set. No prior knowledge or technical expertise is needed.
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.
