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.

Get Fit At Your Desk!
Stuck indoors working? Not enough time to get down to the gym? Can't afford the gym? Well, here's the perfect solution for those of us stuck in front of a computer screen writing-up. This week Times Online is running a series of short videos introducing a set of exercises that can be done at your desk, as demonstrated by Sharron Davis. Personally, I'm working on my bingo wings. ;)
