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.

Curiouser and Curiouser - last call for proposals!
Museobunny would like to remind his gentle readers that Monday is the deadline for proposals for his upcoming Curiouser&Curiouser conference. His minions inform him that some excellent proposals have been received so far, but he wishes to hear more about eccentric collections, kooky collectors, wacky museums, and unusual heritage attractions from all over the world. He points you again to the CFP and admonishes you to send in your ideas for presentations, traditional and otherwise!
