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.

We're excellent - yay!

There's a meme doing the rounds in the blogosphere at the moment and The Attic has been tagged! Michael at The Dispersal of Darwin blog has rated us 'excellent' (too bloody right, mate!), which means that we can display this fancy badge

- and bestow a similar honour on our (i.e. my!) 'most excellent' blogs. Dude. ;) So, here goes...

Adventures in Collections Management
Material World
Museum Blogging
Museum 2.0
Mary's Research Blog

- and, because I believe in sharing the wealth, a few non-museum related blogs that have caught my eye...

Say It Ain't So Joe
Just Hungry
It's Probably Me
The China Beat
