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.

New student journal: Imponderabilia

Gotta love that name!

New student-led journal - Imponderabilia

From their own website:

Imponderabilia is a new multidisciplinary student journal, a platform to share and exchange ideas, criticisms and reflections on anything anthropological (in the widest sense of the word - on anything related to culture and society). With contributions from students from different countries and disciplines, Imponderabilia tries to blur and overcome the boundaries between institutions, disciplines, theories, and between undergraduates and postgraduates.
Imponderabilia is about dialogue, exchange and interaction. Read the articles and think about them, but don't stop there. Respond with comments and reflections. Propose counterarguments and criticisms. And contribute to the next issue.

The exhibition content is wide-ranging, organised around themes such as Visual and Sensory Anthropology; learning and teaching anthropology; development, the environment and activism; ethnography, research and reflections; poetry and short stories.
