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.

Research Week Presentations Posts - Over and...

...almost out. But I've one final message.

I've really had fun. Honestly. I've had agony too, but I think this will be one of those weeks that was so different and strange that I will romanticise it in my mind for many years to come.

Thank you to all the attendees and contributors, and thank you to Viv for organising the week, and the academics for all the support and help both this week and throughout the year. We couldn't do what we do without them.

I'm sure that there will be a post about our Oxford Trip to follow, but for now that's me,

Over and Out

Thanks Jenny, for writing up all the presentations. I had enough trouble remembering my own talk, let alone everyone else's, so you've done an amazing job here!

It also provides a fantastic memento of the week, which will, I'm sure, be of use both as an academic reference and to continue to bind the PhD community together.

Well done you!

Thanks Elee - I think the pain is worth the record.

Your humble scribe, as ever.
