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.

Lecture: Interpreting Japanese Culture in the UK

Interpreting Japanese Culture in the UK
By John Reeve
Thursday 10 July at Asia House
Doors 6.30pm Talk 6.45-7.45pm
John Reeve, former Head of Education at the British Museum, spent two decades studying and working on the presentation of Japanese art to the Western public. Through his work on numerous Japanese exhibitions, two major Japan Festivals and the writing of three books introducing Japanese Arts, John Reeve is in a unique position to reflect on the interpretation of Japanese culture. He will discuss the changing contexts both in Britain and Japan and share his insights for potential dialogue and possible misinterpretation.
