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.

Opportunity for a Web Designer!

Calling any budding web designers out there! The PhD community in the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester are looking for someone to create a website to showcase their March 2011 conference "Curiouser and Curiouser', which aims to celebrate everything about museums that is eccentric, unconventional and unique!

We need someone who can help us create a fantastic and eye-catching resource that can publicise our conference and ensure that it gets us noticed. However, whilst we want the website to reflect the eccentric spirit of the conference, we also need it to be accessible to, and useable by, a wide audience.

We have a modest amount of money available for the website design, construction and hosting - and it's a very tight turnaround - so if you are interested email Ceri Jones - - for a copy of the brief. Proposals need to be returned no later than 5pm on Friday 15 October 2010.
