New Zealand Tourism & Hospitality Research Conference
24 to 26 November 2010
Auckland, New Zealand
The conference theme “Adding Value Through Research” focuses on linking industry and academia through research related activities and aims to prompt involvement and engagement from both those who conduct and those who commission and use it. They seek papers and presentations which inform the wider tourism community regarding how research adds value. This conference will focus on celebrating and advancing research not for its own sake, but for the value it can bring to others.

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.
