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.

Brown Bag Audio Up!

You'll be pleased to know that the Podcast for Britta's wonderful Brown Bag, 'The Museum Entrance and Shop as Spaces of Learning' is now available on Blackboard. Just go to the tab, 'Research Seminars', and then to the folder called 'Brown Bag Seminars 2011-2012'. You'll find all the audio recordings there, in the future!

Could these Podcast's be made available to an audience wider than those who have access to the Mesuem Studies Blackboard site?

Anonymous: I'm afraid that for various reasons, including intellectual property and copyright, we cannot make the audio available to anyone outside the MS department at this time. We try to summarise the salient points in our reviews, so we hope you continue enjoying those.
