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.

Boring theoretical stuff made kind of fun!

For those of you, like me, seriously struggling with the dreaded theory, I can recommend www.theory.org.uk. Check out the trading cards, the lego sets and action figures! I love mad stuff like this. :)

Oh, and the 'How to Survive a PhD' is good too.
