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.

Obsessionistas

Long ago, we had a series on this blog that profiled the collections of our contributors. We will probably return to that eventually, especially since we have a whole whack of new students that probably have secret (but meticulously organized) hoards in their houses. In the meantime, enjoy the collections of others vicariously with Obsessionistas, a blog that profiles people's collections whether run-of-the-mill (comic books, Barbies), endearing (orphaned china saucers), strangely specific (postcards by a particular artist), or bizarre (photographs of wheelie bins). The photos are particularly awesome.
