Dear Attic readers.
Finally YOU can be a fan of the upcoming 'Curiouser and Curiouser' Conference - planned for March 2011. Add our facebook fanpage here to follow up on the latest news on the conference and join our discussions on the strange and unusual within the world of museums.
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.
