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.

Notebooks of Curatorship

From Cristina Lleras:

The production of museological literature, on museum studies or even on collections, is very small in some Latin-American countries such as Colombia. For those interested (and fluent in Spanish) please check the address below. This digital publication started a couple of years ago with the intention of providing the public with more specialized information on the collections of the Museo Nacional de Colombia (the place where I currently work as curator for the art and history collections). I apologize for the language barrier but hopefully we will be able to have this publication in English in the not so distant future. Please feel free to critique or comment this section.
