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.

A little gossip...

...for those who knew the Princess Road MS building - it now belongs to the Beyond Distance Learning Alliance! That mural that some of us saw a few...months (crikey) ago, is actually the background for the 'Media Zoo'. So it isn't a nursery after all!

Sorry if you knew this already!

I hope they're treating the old building well.
