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.

Museum Utopias Programme and Registration
Breaking news: The provisional programme for our upcoming (March 27-28) conference on Museum Utopias has been published to our website. Registration has been open for a while, though early-bird fees and our bursaries have now expired. Still, you have a chance to win free registration (and free books!) in our photo contest on Facebook, Twitter, or our blog.
