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.

Well, chaps, that's me done for tonight. While I'll do a proper round up later, I'd just like to thank the New History Lab for welcoming me to the blog, and for providing what was a fascinating and busy day. We're off to the Guildhall for refreshments (sorely needed) and a tour now, from which I really don't think I can blog.

But thank you all. I'm very, very grateful to you for brightening up my Saturday!
