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.

This Picture was Almost not brought to readers of the Attic due to Amy being trapped in a Room and the Department of Museum Studies having No Electricity!

Blimey! I should point out, dear readers, that I'm not being held captive. I'm blogging the Material Worlds conference instead. Which kind of does involve being trapped in a room...
