Don't forget the deadline for submitting your abstract for Museum Utopias, the 2012 Symposium organized by the PhD community at the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, is this Monday 14 November.
Check out our website for further details and the CFP, which can also be found here.
We've received some fascinating proposals so far, and look forward to reading yours!
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.
