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.

An Attic Advent

Yes, it's very nearly that time of year again. From tomorrow (1st Dec) and each day until Christmas Day we will be featuring a different item of museum merchandise available to buy now.

Why not support a museum or heritage organisation while you shop for Christmas?

Oh Amy, you wicked temptress you!

Having said that, the Pitt-Rivers Museum's gift shop is full of fairly-traded and reasonably-priced goodies, as I found out today.
