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.

Fancy studying with us in Leicester?

Then read on...

The Department of Museum Studies invites applications from prospective PhD
students to be considered for a Studentship funded by the Arts and Humanities
Research Council (AHRC), for entry in October 2009.

The studentships are open to applicants with a Masters degree in a relevant subject. The full value of the award includes a stipend, a fee waiver and a small research training grant.

Applicants should contact Viv Golding - Director of PhD Research - as all candidates will be assessed on the development of a full and relevant research proposal.
