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.

Conference Alert: FLUX: Art History, Cinema, Classics and Archaeology

FLUX: Art History, Cinema, Classics and Archaeology
Postgraduate Conference
9–10 November 2006
University of Melbourne

The School of Art History, Cinema, Classics and Archeology’s 2006 Postgraduate conference is on the subject of FLUX. With its connotations of flow and fusion, of formation, dissolution and reformulation, FLUX reflects both the interdisciplinary spirit of this year’s conference and the broader status of the humanities within the Australian tertiary sector. FLUX will feature 75 papers by postgraduates from universities across Australia and New Zealand in art history, cinema, classics, archaeology,museology and related disciplines. Additionally, there will be keynote addresses by Prof. Ronald de Leeuw (Director of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam) and Adrian Martin (Senior Research Fellow, Monash University Film and Television). FLUX is a free event. All welcome.
