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.

Macquarie Museum Studies

Wishing g'day to our Aussie compatriots:
We have a small Museum Studies program based at Macquarie University in Sydney Australia.

Our students have put together an online magazine, much of the material relates to our own on campus museums and the student experiences, but there is also stuff of a more general nature. The latest edition has a Natural History focus. You can find the latest edition here:-

If you would like to subscribe please send me a message and I'll add you to our list. We plan an issue every 4 to 6 weeks.
