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.

Heads-up: Research Week

Just a little note to let everyone know, not already 'in the know', that the Department's PhD Research Week starts tomorrow.  Providing I can get an Internet connection I am going to try to 'live blog', but if that fails, there will be plenty of paper reviews, photos and maybe even a little extra (top sekret!) something for your delectation appearing on an Attic post near you very soon!
