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.

STOP PRESS! Amazing new photos...




PhD student finds image of Mother Teresa on strawberry. Anna Woodham looked on in amazement as the benevolent visage of the late Albanian nun spontaneously appeared in yogurt, late Sunday evening.

The holy strawberry has been preserved for posterity, and is likely to be auctioned on Ebay to raise funds for the Museum Studies PhD Students' social fund.

Amy - I hope you are preserving the strawberry under the right conditions...? Maybe one of the conservators amoung us could give some advice...?

Ummmm - I have a terrible confession to make. It went in the bin!

Do you think I'll be ex-communicated? :S
