We've exposed the Creationist Museum and now the Attic is taking on Scientology. ;)
Someone recently sent this to the Leicester Museum Studies reunion email list, and I thought it was worth posting here too.
The link that follows is to a darkly satirical review of the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death exhibition in LA, so - as ever - if you think you might be offended by its tone, I suggest you don't click below.
I guess this is how the Church of Scientology recruits new members, by scaring the proverbial out of some of the most vulnerable in society.
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.
