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.

Publications: Museological Review (Issue 12)

After a temporary hiatus of three years I am delighted to announce that Museological Review is back, returning with a special issue (12) which comprises the proceedings of the Material Culture, Identities and Social Inclusion conference held at the University of Leicester in February 2006.

A list of contents can be found on the Museological Review website. Copies may be ordered from the University of Leicester bookshop at £8 per issue, plus p&p. More details can be found here. N.B. Conference delegates will receive a free copy shortly (postal strikes permitting!).

Look out for the next issue (13) during Autumn 2007, which will coincide with Museological Review becoming an biannual, online journal.
