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.

Christa Lohman, The Attic's Chicago correspondent and ex-Leicester MA Museum Studies student, is an amateur photographer extraordinaire! Whilst volunteering at Chicago's Freedom Museum, she took a series of shots that explore the museum's environs from new perspectives. Really worth a look (view the set here), and I'm sure she'd be delighted to receive your comments.

Oh, and Christa's photographic skills are currently 'for hire' by the way. ;)
