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.

Top Ten Endangered Buildings

The Victorian Society have revealed their list of the top ten endangered buildings. I'd like to give a personal shout out to the Mosely School of Art and Bradgate Hose Stables.

I'm glad there are things like this. It gives me hope that people care. Hopefully one day the Eastgates Coffee House will be likewise respected.
