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.

Historical Hot or Not - Poll!
Attic readers, it's election time in the UK, but we have a more appealing set of candidates for you - it is up to you to decide who will be crowned our Ultimate Museum Hottie! In the sidebar, you will find the top male and female candidates. You will have until May 11, 2010 to vote for your favourite in either category (click on the Museum Hot or Not tag to refresh your memory of their varied aesthetic appeals), and then you will be able to vote for your ultimate favourite between those. Get clicking!
