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.

I'll have a long glass of Tropicana Spirit (Lemon & Grapefruit variety), thanks. AKA 'Amy's crack.' ;)

J said...

LOL, I am certain that there is a silver bottle ticket for that somewhere! ;-)

Amy said...

Well, if there isn't, there should be!

The factory's in Leicester. Does anyone know where? So I can stake it out. ;)

Google brings up this Yahoo!Answers discussion:

(Why am I doing this when I could be taking a New Year's Day nap? I don't know...)

Amy said...

Ah, so it isn't made in Leicester afterall. Bugger!
