Healthy PR exercise

February 21, 2013

Negative comments about the University of Leicester’s handling of the Richard III announcement show how far we have to go before professional public relations is accepted by all research disciplines (“Bare-bones revelations give scholars the hump”, News, 14 February). Does the positive reference to the Higgs boson announcement and the negative comments from historians suggest that the humanities lag behind other parts of the research community? Leicester should be congratulated, not criticised.
