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.

Peer Reviewers Needed
Are you a PhD student in Museum Studies, heritage, or a related discipline? Would you like to get some publishing experience for your CV? Do you have a good grasp of the English language? Then please join our stable of peer reviewers for Museological Review, the Museum Studies PhD student journal. We are working on an issue arising out of our Curiouser and Curiouser conference and would love to get a few more people to give the authors valuable editorial feedback and suggestions on improving their papers for publication. Email the editors with your details (name, affiliation, year of programme, academic interests, experience if relevant) at museological[dot]review[at]hotmail[dot]co[dot]uk
