The conference team and I are excited to announce that we are now taking bookings for our forthcoming student-led Symposium Museum Utopias: Navigating the Imaginary, Ideal and Possible Museum, to be hosted by the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, on 27 -28 March 2012.
Book your place here.
We are also pleased to offer four travel bursaries to full-time PhD students - please check our official website for eligibility criteria and an application form.
We look forward to seeing you all in Leicester next year!
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.
