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.

A shameless plug! The Department of Museum Studies Research Seminar Series 2006-2007

The Museum Studies Research Seminar Series 2006/7

The Museum Studies Research Seminar is an informal ‘brown bag’ (bring a sandwich!) group that meets fortnightly on Mondays at 1.00pm. Museum Studies is an inter-disciplinary field and all are welcome. Refreshments served.

*This year one meeting, 29th November at 4.30-6.00pm, has been coordinated with the School of Historical Studies Post Colonial Research Group. The Postcolonial Research Group have dinner (usually at a local curry house!) after their ‘twilight’ meeting and we hope you will join us for this. All other meetings during the autumn term will be held in the School of Education.
The first meeting on 30th October will be held in the Stable Block (off Princess Road East, opposite the Education Car Park) in Room H2. The seminar with the Post Colonial Group on 29.11.06 will be held in Att 204.

For further details, or to join the email list, please contact Viv Golding
