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.

Eccentric Museum Objects final poll results

Museobunny is a confirmed vegetarian, so he personally cannot understand the appeal of meat, but he is very happy see that 62 people voted on his poll, picking the most eccentric museum object in the world. The Icelanders who supported their country's entry, the flesh trousers, will be happy to hear that they emerged victorious by an overwhelming majority. Museobunny thinks that this means they should all attend the Curiouser and Curiouser conference, as they seem to be rather curious people!
Speaking of the conference, there now remain only a few weeks to get your abstract in for the conference. See the CFP again here. Museobunny wants you to be there! And remember, you can always catch up on conference news by clicking on 'curiouser and curiouser' in our tag cloud.
