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.

Permanently Magical | Review | Building Design

Under this link, there is a review of the new exhibition at Sir John Soane's House, London.
Permanently Magical | Review | Building Design

As a big fan of Soane's Museum, I love that this museum, seen by many as a place of stasis, is able to adapt and change - and accept the natural changes that the environment flings at it, such as bomb and police raid damage. You've got to love the marriage of fixity and mutability...
