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.

Did you know you can watch Anthony Gormley's project One & Other, to enable members of the public to become living art in Trafalgar Square, online? Visit the website for the live streaming video and to find out more about the participants and their fifteen minutes of fame (well, to be fair, more like an hour each) atop the fourth plinth. And, if you fancy it, there's still time to apply to take part!
