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.

Pre-symposium excitement

In excited anticipation of the symposium, I was inspired to create the following picture...



Ok, so it's Friday, and my brain is obviously melting. Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting other folks on Monday, and I'm now off to make up the conference packs.

And I'm off to weep in a corer for the fate of this bear.

This, however, is a much better use of a bicycle:

I should mention this refers to an insider joke, which we're unlikely to reveal. Check us out being elitist again! ;)

Yeah, sorry folks - in jokes are obviously not so effective on a public blog. If anyone's coming to the conference you can hear the reasoning behind the picture. If not, then you can just enjoy looking at the funny bear! ;)
