And very serendipitously leading on from Ceri's review of Dave Unwin's research seminar, here's a link to a wickedly satirical, but spot-on review of the much-derided Creationist Museum. Make sure you take the time to look at all the photos. Absolutely hilarious. The one entitled 'A Penguin, a Toucan, a Lamb and Adam Walk Into a Bar...' is priceless. ;)

N.B. If you think you might be offended by the tone of the review, I suggest you don't click on the link.
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.
