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.

CFP/New Publication: Journal of Art Historiography

JOURNAL OF ART HISTORIOGRAPHY
Call for contributors


This journal will publish its first issue on 31st December 2009 and will appear every six months thereafter. It intends to offer a focus for the study of art historiography. Its mission statement reads:

This journal exists to support and promote the study of the history of art historical writing. Much of this practice has been shaped by traditions inaugurated by Giorgio Vasari, Winckelmann and German academics of the
nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Consequent to the expansion of universities, museums and galleries, the field has evolved to include areas outside of its traditional boundaries.

There is a double danger that contemporary scholarship will forget its earlier legacy and that it will neglect the urgency and rigour with which those early debates were conducted. The earlier legacy remains embedded in
'normal' practice. More recent art history also stands in need of its own scrutiny. The journal is committed to studying art historical scholarship, in its institutional and conceptual foundations, from the past to the present day in all areas and all periods.

This journal will ignore the disciplinary boundaries imposed by the Anglophone expression 'art history' and allow and encourage the full range of enquiry that encompassed the visual arts in its broadest sense as well as topics now falling within archaeology, anthropology, ethnography and other specialist disciplines and approaches. It will welcome contributions from young and established scholars and is aimed at building an expanded audience for what has hitherto been a much specialised topic of investigation.

Besides articles, it will accept notes, reviews, letters and translations. It will be published every June and December and include both peer-reviewed and commissioned contributions.

The Editor invites submissions from interested scholars.
