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.

Museobunny Wants YOU!

Registration is now open for the Curiouser & Curiouser Conference at the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, being held from the 28th – 30th March 2011. Please visit the official conference website for more information and the registration form.

This interdisciplinary conference, aimed at PhD students, early career researchers and museum professionals, will seek to challenge notions of normality and eccentricity in museums, galleries and heritage institutions.

We look forward to welcoming you to our conference!
