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.

Just a gentle reminder that we are still looking for abstracts for the Autumn issue of the Museological Review, a student journal edited by the PhDs based in the Department of Museum Studies at Leicester. The deadline for submissions is the end of April. See the link in the sidebar (i.e. 'Stop Press!!!') for more details. -------------------------------------->>>

No probs Ceri - got your name down on my list! ;) Did my abstract this afternoon. But we need a few more - so, if anyone out there is interested, please feel free to submit something. We're happy to accept quite radical, experimental, 'left-field' work, btw. A good opportunity to get something published. Or, to develop some tangential idea you've had rattling round your head for a little while!
