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.

Wow! Colour makes the world of difference. I feel like I'm seeing London through my Grandma's eyes (who would have been 11 in 1927).

That's awesome! I love it! I definitely vote for the return of the all-powerful hand - traffic lights are for wusses!
I love the bit at the end where you see the film maker with his puppy. Such a sucker for puppies...
