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.

Celebrate 10 Years of RCMG!

Join us to celebrate 10 years of RCMG on Tuesday 17th November in the Lecture Hall, Museum Studies Building, University of Leicester. 5.30pm for 6pm start.

Since the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries was set up in 1999 the landscape of learning in museums has been transformed and the way museums think about their social roles and responsibilities has radically shifted. This session invites three key figures who have been part of these exciting changes to discuss and debate trends in museum thinking and practice.

It will also be a chance for you to see our new home, the new Museum Studies Building, which we moved to in September. We now have much more space and some terrific facilities.
