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.

Comments and moderation
Overnight The Attic received a rash of comments (well...four to be honest!), but (so far) I haven't published any of them (all comments are sent to me first for moderation). While it's fantastic to know that so many people out there in cyber-space are reading and enjoying the blog, a decision has been made to restrict comments to subjects related to specific blog posts or museum studies in general. If you're advertising a new blog or website, please feel free to email The Attic, and if we (that being the 'Royal We', i.e. moi!) feel it would of interest to other readers we'll blog it. Oh, and please mind your language. Personally I'm not fussed about effing and blinding, but please be mindful of other readers who may have more delicate sensibilities. :)
