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.

Your email should state:

AHRC ICT Methods Network STUDENT BURSARIES

The AHRC ICT Methods Network (www.methodsnetwork.ac.uk), which exists to
promote and support the use of advanced ICT methods in arts and humanities
research, is offering a limited number of bursaries to post-graduate
students who wish to attend EVA 2007 (programme below).
The conference takes place on 9th- 13 July 2007 at The London College of
Communications, University of the Arts, London.

Applications for bursaries are sought from post-graduate students registered
at UK Universities whose research interests are grounded in areas covered by
EVA. These include visualisation for the arts and culture, including
impications, effects, and consequent strategies and policies, and the uses
of digital media for creative productions and works of art, which may be
considered to be within EVA's sphere of interest.

The bursaries are intended to help towards conference expenses.
Successful applicants will be able to claim funds up to a total of £200
toward the cost of conference fees, accommodation and travel.

If you wish to apply for a bursary please register for the EVA conference in
the first instance. The EVA conference programme, abstracts and booking form
are available on:
http://www.eva-conferences.com/eva_london/

Following your registration for EVA, please complete the bursary application
form, available on the AHRC ICT Methods Network website:
http://www.methodsnetwork.ac.uk/community/postgraduates.html

If you have any queries about completing the form please contact Hazel
Gardiner (hazel.gardiner@kcl.ac.uk) using the heading - EVA Bursary
Applications – in the subject bar.

Bursary winners will be asked to submit a short report to the Methods
Network following the conference.
