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.

CFP/Publication: ERAS

Fro H-Museum:

Submissions Due: 31st March 2009

Eras is an online journal edited and produced by postgraduate students from the School of Historical Studies at Monash University. As a fully refereed journal with DEST status, Eras is intended as an international forum for current or recently completed Masters and PhD students to publish original research, comment and reviews in the following fields covered by the School's teaching and research: History, Archaeology and Ancient History, Religion and Theology and Jewish Civilisation.

We are seeking papers from postgraduate students working in any of the fields listed above. Papers are also strongly encouraged from students in other disciplines, such as Cultural Studies, Indigenous Studies, Gender Studies, Philosophy, Sociology and Politics, provided such manuscripts are relevant to the journal's primary fields of interest.

We are also interested in papers relating to history of the museum.

Papers of 5000 words and a short abstract should be submitted to by 31st March 2009. Detailed notes and editorial guidelines for individual contributors are available on our web site (listed below).

It is anticipated that the eleventh edition of Eras will appear in November 2009. Look for our tenth edition online at:
