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 Museum of Lost Interactions

This just caught my eye:

Students Score Web Hit With Innovative Online Design Museum - 24 Hour Museum - official guide to UK museums, galleries, exhibitions and heritage

The online exhibit, which the 24 Hour Museum article links to, is well worth a look.

(Which reminds me, have you all noticed the 24 Hour Museum news feed in the left-hand sidebar?)
