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.

It sounds really good but I will be in Manchester that day, :(

Still a review for the blog would be greatly appreciated!

Of course! Trains might be a bit problematic though - will see if I can work something out.

Actually, thinking about it, it might clash with Eurovision - eek! ;)
