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.

Museum: The Soundtrack
Further to recent discussions about the merits of music in the gallery space (see here and here), and borrowing heavily from The Guardian's Readers Recommend feature, what would be your ideal soundtrack to a museum visit? I have visions of creating an Attic iPod playlist!
