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.

What do Museum Studies PhDs look like?

On Wednesday, instead of our usual Research Seminar, we had a kind of PhD student surgery, where those of us who could make it, had a good chat about our research. That will be of very little interest to anyone outside our own little community ( if you are really that interested, you can find out more by reading our online profiles), but I thought it was a good opportunity to share a few more photographs of us all doing scholarly type things, as opposed to the more usual eating, museum 'crawling' or drinking alcohol. ;)

Viv does her bit to 'push' the new issue of Museological Review.

Magnus explains it all, while Kouros looks on.

Anna tells of trials and tribulations.

Mette gives us the Danish perspective.

Ceri and Mette don't normally look this serious!
