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.

Opportunity to write for the Museums Journal!

I came across a little advert in the latest Museums Journal yesterday, which you might have missed. They're looking for 'people to write critical reviews of new and redeveloped museums and galleries and temporary exhibitions'.

To be considered, post or email a short CV (inc. areas of expertise) and one example of your writing to the following address by 1st October 2006.

Simon Stephens
Deputy Editor
Museums Journal
24 Calvin Street
LONDON
E1 6NW

Tel: 020 7426 6920

or email: simon@museumsassociation.org

Might be worth looking into. Could be a good way of developing your writing skills and getting your name out 'there'. And, who knows, the pay might not be too bad either! ;)
