Very interesting critique. I've yet to visit the centre but the King in the Car Park story has gripped me, not only for the discovery of the R3's remains, but also the great skill and scientific expertise your University colleagues have employed, not least in the visualisation of Medieval Leicester, which I've always found confusing with the changes wrought over the centuries. I also hope the deficiencies you point out can be remedied in the months leading up to the re-interment.

I could not agree more. Both Leicester city and county councils do whatever they want to do, no matter what the residents views are. So much for democracy. My father and uncles fought against dictatorship in second world war .........WHY?

Hello Attic readers! I am 14 yrs old and have wanted to be a curator since I was 10. I have an online museum: http://themuseumofmiddleschool.blogspot.com/
and I am looking for resources and communities to connect to in the museum world. I will be in high school in a month and would like to start building my resume...

Museums are exactly one of the place children,at a young age should come and visit. They can learn a lot from there while having fun.

2014-04-12T18:38:00.500+01:00

Having been born in Wales and living in Llandudno for the last fifteen, I've visited Barclodiad Y Gawres quite a few times over the years but have never seen inside, until today that is (12/4/14).

Seeing the Irish inspired stone decoration for the first time was something I will never forget.

Newgrange and Knowth in County Meath in Ireland is justly famous for this particular style of spiral and chevron rock art, and only Bryn Celli Ddu also on Anglesea can share their Irish connections with those famous tombs of the Boyne valley.

Well worth a visit but take a torch with you because the interior of the tomb is very dark.

I should also point out that this should inspire some debate! Come on, someone disagree or agree or state an opinion! The Attic has been very quiet lately (except for spam comments).

That 'new' label you mention has been there for at least the last 10 years, if not longer... These models have been displayed as illustrations of 50s attitudes to archaeology essentially since they came to Leicester.

2013-06-03T09:27:52.365+01:00

Tumblr, whose headline was "Curating Online: Hobbies for Hipsters."

I never knew this was Tumblr's headline. I can definitely understand why someone working professionally as a curator would find this inappropriate as Tumblr users do have a reckless approach to copyright and provenance.

Curious if this extends to other sites like Instagram or even my own hipster fashion site that runs off eBay affiliates. eBay itself has a very large selection of vintage and collectible items.

Kind Regards,
Alex

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.

Being part of the PhD world isn’t that easy indeed. I have known a lot of people with same experience as you and they turn out very successful in life. They also have late realization of having academic career, but they persevere and become optimistic in their endeavor to get a diploma in PhD.

2013-04-21T10:32:05.810+01:00

Trawling - mainly in vain - through a growing number of blogs / discussion forums / job lists in search of a post-PhD career (with what, to the untrained eye, may look like a rather schizophrenic CV), I came across your post and I couldn't stop myself from hitting the 'comment' button. I wholeheartedly agree with everything that you say (you really do hit the nail on the head!) and I think it is really important that we acknowledge and discuss such matters. While I was initially just going for a simple 'here here!' comment, I decided that it would probably be more useful to expand on this with some of my own post-PhD experiences and concerns...Having recently (January) completed my PhD, I am left feeling like one arm has been cut off and the other is punching the air with joy! I know that it is still early days, but I also find myself in a strange 'no-man's land' - somewhere between the museum sector and the world of academia.I too am in my thirties (although mid rather than early) and embarked on a PhD having spent a good 7 years working in the museum sector. I undertook my PhD as a part-time self-funded student, and as much as this seemed like a sensible idea at the time (i.e.in 2007 which, for those who can remember, was an altogether more optimistic time!), with hindsight, I get the impression that maybe it wasn't! As far as the museum sector is concerned, I don't feel particularly confident about my future prospects since my most recent museum experience (i.e. over the last 6 years) consists of various part time positions, freelance work and involvement in short term projects. Now don't get me wrong, I appreciate that I am very lucky to have found work in the museum sector at all, but given the choice, I expect that an employer will chose someone with a recent track-record of full time work in the sector over someone like myself who may well have plenty of experience (covering curatorial, educational, research and exhibition-related work), but who, on paper, comes across as being rather erratic and lacking direction. Likewise, a career in the academic world seems equally unlikely: During my PhD, work commitments made it difficult (impossible?) to fully engage as a member of the 'academic community' (i.e. attending conferences, presenting papers, working as a graduate teaching assistant, and participating in departmental activities in general, all require time and money (or at least have financial implications), and as a part-time self funded student, paid work always had to come first), so compared to someone who has spent the last three years immersed in the academy, I don't fancy my chances of pursuing a career in academia. Having finished my PhD, I can talk about the experience rather fondly: I am in no doubt that I have gained a lot from it. I do, however, find myself wondering whether I am really any better off with this qualification. In the museum sector, while a subject-specific PhD may be viewed favourably (particularly for curatorial positions), the value of a PhD in museology is perhaps less clear - I know that this is rather a negative thing to say, but based on personal experience, I get the impression that a PhD in museology (particularly a part-time one) may hinder rather than help my quest for work. This is not going to stop me from searching for an opportunity to use both my academic and professional experience, but (again, this is purely based on my limited experience of searching[...]

2013-04-04T00:13:48.604+01:00

I am deeply impressed by the use of footnote references in this write-up!

While I applaud Dr Janes' optimism and inspirational call to arms, as a museum historian, I question the limits of the ability of the museum institution to move beyond its imperialist, colonialist project, as it still defines the centrality of museums in contemporary society. Serena and I have had amy discussions about this, and it still seems to me that much of the calls for social inclusion and social justice and the social economy in the museum sector smack of restitution and revisionism by people of white middle-class privilege (a class to which i myself belong and in which I am painfully immobilized).
