Apologies for my continued lack of attention with regards to The Attic. Nasty shock + delicate nerves = complete meltdown. But I'm on the mend now and hope to be blogging like a good'un again soon. To come are more reviews of Research Week and the rest of the Museum Crawl report. I'm using a dial-up connection, so posts may appear a little slowly. Please bear with me.
Thanks to Ceri for keeping the blog going in my absence and Afshan and Pippa for their recent comments.
Lots of love,
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.
