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.

Jumping for joy

Ok, so I just suggested in a comment to Julia's last post that there wouldn't be any point in flashmobbing Leicester museums due to lack of appreciative crowds. However, that doesn't mean we can't express our happiness in some other way. A month ago, on the Halloween museum crawl, we were so excited by Leicester's heritage that (in the style of these folks) we jumped for joy...

Now that's happiness!
