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.

Friday Phantom Blogging

Forget catblogging, that's boring! Phantom blogging's where it's at.

Rumour has it that last week one of our number had a chilling paranormal experience in the Social Work building (for the uninitiated, that's where the PhD students have their offices). Apparently, upon looking down a stairwell, he spied a blond-haired spectre heading in the direction of the basement. Disembodied footsteps and voices have also been heard, not too mention the incredibly strong odour of cigarette smoke that choked me last summer (and which no one - no one living, that is - owned up to). Eek!!! I always knew that building was way too spooky.

Have you experienced anything other worldly in 107 Princess Road East? If so, drop us a line...
