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.

Guinea Pigs wanted!

Do you want to be a glamorous guinea pig in a fantastical museumy research project?

I am looking for participants in my experiment looking at how people view art and would love to hear from anyone able to take part in 3 session over the next 6 months. This would take place in Leicester and all you need to do is look at some art and answer some questions... no sharks with lasers on their heads to get past, no mathimatical equations to solve, and no absolutly no asparagus to eat!

If you're interested and would like some more details please send a wee note to me at:


Thanks muchos

You know I am always willing to look like a cyborg for you - even if you don't give me any asparagus instead! :)
