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.

In response to the BBC News Magazine's article on why the UK still drives on the left, Steve from Suffolk has this to say:
As in so many things, Britain remains a floating heritage museum of the absurd, forever trapped in a pre-industrial era of quaint practices and bizarre traditions.

Discuss.

[I think that's what draws the tourists in! It did me...]

Amy from Suffolk says 'and why not? If it ain't broke don't fix it'.
