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.

Wonders and Cabinets, Alchemy and Imagination

I just wanted to share this with you.

It is nice that in a world so cynical, someone can make something pretty just for its own merit. And sometimes Einstein was right - imagination is more important than reason.

Enjoy,

The Museum of Lost Wonder
