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.

Museums at Night 2010
As many of you will be aware, Museums at Night is coming up! Even though we only have one event here in Leicester (get on with it LCC!), I'm excited. I'm especially excited too, to have been invited to the launch of the event, so I'm off to London today! I shall report back with all the gossip, and an update on the soon-to-open Florence Nightingale Museum!
