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.

Greetings from snowy Sweden!

Hi Everyone

Just a quick update from the NaMu conference in Sweden that 4 of the Leicester PhD students are presenting at! So far Anna presented today about how the German national museums are presenting ideas about the Holocaust. Anna called for more connection to the wider audience. Lena's paper on the New National Museum of Korea also considered the question of audiences and their expectations of National Museums and the message of the 'Nation'. Wednesday we have Mette and Sally presenting, so hopefully more updates soon!

Många Hälsningar från Sverige

Anna, Lena & Anna xxx

Ahoy there!

Glad to hear you all made it and that Lena and Anna survived their presentations (not that I ever doubted they would, of course). From the tone of your message it sounds like you're all having a great time. Looking forward to the next update! Sending positive vibes in Sally and Mette's direction...
