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.

Instant answers to all your questions at a click of a mouse!

Found a wonderful little blogging widget whilst browsing Bridget McKenzie's blog (which our guest blogger Suzanne did a review of earlier in the week). If you're not sure of the meaning of any word or term in any Attic post, just double click it for a definition or explanation of its meaning, works for names and places too. Thought it might be a useful tool for our non-UK based readers, or anyone confused by long words (including myself!). ;)

Why not have a go now? Really, it does work - I'm not trying to make you look silly! Go on, just try it, double click a word...
