Curiouser and Curiouser


Welcome to the website for Curiouser and Curiouser, the 2011 Symposium from the PhD Community at the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester! Supported by the Roberts Fund and the School of Museum Studies, we seek to challenge notions of normality and eccentricity in museums, galleries and heritage institutions. The Symposium will be held here, at the School of Museum Studies, between 28 and 30 March 2011. We hope you'll join us on our journey down the Rabbit Hole and Through the Looking Glass...
