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: Invisible Culture

From H-Museum:


Invisible Culture, Issue 11, Fall 2007

***New Deadline***
Submission Deadline: June 10, 2007

Issue 11: Curator and Context

As globalization gives way to new cosmopolitanisms, and new media art
transforms the site of the museum into the virtual realm, what has become of
the curator? Invisible Culture invites papers and projects concerned with
contemporary (post-1960s) curatorial and museum practice. Submissions in the
form of 2,500-6,000 word papers from all disciplines, as well as digital
projects (virtual museums, online art exhibitions, and internet-based
endeavors, for example) are welcome.
The full CFP can be found at:

Submissions and inquiries should be directed to Mara Gladstone, Graduate
Program in Visual and Cultural Studies at the University of Rochester at Deadline for submission is June 10, 2007.

*Invisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture* is a
peer-reviewed journal dedicated to explorations of the material and
political dimensions of cultural practices: the means by which cultural
objects and communities are produced, the historical contexts in which they
emerge, and the regimes of knowledge or modes of social interaction to which
they contribute.
