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 Studies Seminar for Portuguese and Spanish speakers

From Alice Semedo:

Dear Attic Colleagues,

Although this is a seminar for Portuguese and Spanish museum studies researchers, I wonder if you could possibly post the Call for Papers on the Attic's blog: I am sure that many website visitors will be interested!

The research seminar will take place on October (12-14 October 2009) and the Call for Papers (papers: Doctoral and Post-Doctoral research; posters: MA dissertations) runs until the end of April. This year, the Seminar is organized by the Museum Studies PhD Course, University of Porto – Portugal (

All information relating to this Research Seminar can be found at the social network recently created, Museologia.Porto (

All the best!
