Happy 2010 folks! As Ceri pointed out to me on Facebook the other day, we are now 'in the future'. Crazee!
I'm snow-bound in Suffolk at the moment and bored out of my skull, so expect quite a few blog posts from me during the next couple of days. May I also take this opportunity to invite contributors old and new to the blog. Seen a good exhibition, or read a interesting book over the hols? Why not write about it here? If you're not already signed up as a contributor please feel free to contact me.
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.
