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.

Museum blogs and podcasts
I've recently added a couple of widgets, provided by Ideum's excellent Museum Blogs directory, that list and give access to the latest posts and podcasts from a diverse and growing range of museum and museum-related blogs. You'll find them in the right-hand column (scroll down the page). If you come across a particularly good blog, or interesting podcast, why not let us know?
