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.

Critics Rave...

As you all know,
The views expressed by contributors to The Attic are personal and do not necessarily reflect those of the Department of Museum Studies.
but we nevertheless are thrilled to have the personal (and public!) praise of our Director and Head of Department, Professor Dr Richard Sandell, who writes:
The (frequently minxey) postings on The Attic blog are set to become my new guilty pleasure.
Check out his Twitter here, and follow the leader!
