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.

The results are in! Unfortunately, one of you only voted on the men and not the women, and you could have broken our tie! So while Sir Henry Wellcome won by a narrow margin (congratulations, Amy!) it is up to our conveniently located (in the PhD room next to me) male representative, Geuntae, to cast his deciding vote for our hottie female. Given his alternative in Peggy Guggenheim, Geuntae decided that the winner is: Eleanor Hewitt!
So now, gentle readers, please now cast your vote for the ULTIMATE Museum Hottie. I look forward to the results - will it be Sir Henry Wellcome or Eleanor Hewitt? Only you have the power to decide!!!
