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.

The EVA London conference is a forum for communicating the uses and implications of electronic visualisation in the arts and culture. Held annually, it is for groups and organisations from a wide range of disciplines to share and promulgate results. The scope includes an inspirational range of perspectives, from policy and strategy to technology and visual and other creative arts. It is a venue for practitioners, researchers, managers, policy makers and suppliers.
