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.

Would there be parapsychology involved? Could we have a Victorian-style spiritualism meeting? Because I would totally be up for that! ;-)

You do know that Leicester Museums employ a parapsychologist and host regular ghost vigils, don't you?!

Srsly.

Can't blame them for milking the whole paranormal thing really though, can you?

Jenny said...

That's MAD!

Erm, a little out the range at the moment!

*sulks*

Nah, I guess you can't blame them.
