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.

Narrative Space - Post One and an apology!

Hello all - we've had a few technological issues, so I shall have to blog about this later! Many apologies, but if I'm to do it properly, I'll have to think about the papers! We've had to do a bit of re-ordering, because of the ash-cloud. Three concurrent sessions are running all at once, and I shall blog about the ones that I get to go to later. But I'm currently working as techie-geek, and that is making things ...interesting...

It has been amazing having all the technological last-minute adaptation as a result of the volcano-affected missing speakers. I've really appreciated being able to hear papers anyway, although obviously one misses the personal touch and the interactivity of Q&A (Lee Skolnik's connection was not good enough to allow audience questions, sadly, and the other distance presentations were pre-recorded.) It has been pretty Meta, too - at one point, Jen was recording a pre-recorded presentation about how virtual technology implies absence!
