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/CFP: Eras

From H-Material Culture:

The Eras on-line postgraduate journal is currently seeking submissions of papers for publication for our forthcoming editions in 2008 and 2009.

Eras is a fully refereed on-line journal edited and produced by postgraduate students
from the School of Historical Studies at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia which is intended as an international forum for current or recently completed Masters and PhD students to publish original research, comment and reviews in any field covered by the Monash SHS's teaching and research. We are seeking papers from postgraduate students working in any of the fields listed below, along with a brief description of your current affiliation and thesis topic.

Eras publishes papers from the following disciplines: History, Archaeology and Ancient History, Religion and Theology and Jewish Civilisation. Papers are also strongly encouraged from students in other disciplines, such as Cultural Studies, Indigenous Studies, Gender Studies, Philosophy, Sociology and Politics, providing such manuscripts are relevant to the journal's primary disciplines.

For our upcoming editions we would be particularly interested in submissions relating to state and local history, museums and material culture. Eras is a fully refereed journal and all papers will be subjected to the standard refereeing process. Papers should be up to 5,000 words in length and full submission guidelines are available on the journal website:

Please forward all submissions via email to: by June 1, 2008 for the 2008 edition (submissions received after June 1 will be considered for the 2009 unless space allows inclusion in the earlier edition)

Thank you
L.Grant & M. Katz
