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.

PhD Research Week: Day 1

Just got in from our research week dinner at The Curry House. Day 1 has been pretty exhausting and it all starts again tomorrow at 9.30am! Still, it's been nice to get together with people I haven't seen for a while, and meet new colleagues. And, a big relief to get my presentation out of the way!

A review of Day 1 will follow shortly, but in the meantime, here's a few photos to whet your appetites.
