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: 24th December 2009
Lego Lights Dynamo Torch (Science Museum)
No more scrabbling in the dark with this cheerful torch to light your way. With a bulb concealed in his foot, this LEGO man strides in to help when a little extra light is needed. And he's eco friendly too - just turn the crank handle and the torch lights up.
