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.

Can I just say....

...I LOVE this blog! Many, many, thanks to all our regular contributors and readers.

Just wanted to let you all know that you are truly appreciated. But I really must get on with some work now so, if things go a bit quiet from me over the next few days, you know why. x

I love this blog too but I fear I am getting too comfortable and keep posting silly stuff instead of being academic or even museum related. Please tell me if this is inappropriate... I can take it :)

Ceri - everything you post is fantastic! And very relevant. The great thing about Museum Studies is that it is multidisciplinary - it's good to have dicussions about non directly museum-related issues from time to time. And hey, the silly stuff is necessary for balance. :)
