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.

CFP: The Third PROGRESS Conference


The Third PROGRESS Conference
Thursday 7 June 2007

The University of Manchester
School of Arts, Histories and Cultures

The School of Arts, Histories and Cultures is committed to fostering interdisciplinary intellectual exchanges within its postgraduate community. This is reflected in the nature of research being undertaken by its current MA and PhD students. The conference, sponsored by SAGE, is designed for all junior researchers interested in cross-disciplinary research. We invite proposals of 250 - 300 words from postgraduate students at any university who are currently engaged in research of an interdisciplinary nature.

Themes for papers are not restrictive but we are most interested in those that appeal to a broad audience. Papers delivered at the conference will be considered for possible inclusion in a special issue of PROGRESS, the online postgraduate journal for the School of Arts, Histories and Cultures at the University of Manchester.

For further information or to submit an abstract please email Miss Anne-Marie C. Hughes and Ms Charlie Wildman at

Deadline for abstracts – 7 May 2007
