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.

Radio: The Maltby Collection

BBC Radio 7 is repeating a BBC Radio 4 comedy series called The Maltby Collection, set in a London art museum threatened with closure.

You can listen to the first episode again via the BBC's iPlayer (UK only). The second episode is on tonight at 10.30pm (30 mins). Worth checking out, if only to marvel at the apparent ease Julian Rhind-Tutt's character gains museum employment! (And also cos someone I went to U.E.A. with, all those aeons ago, is in it!)
