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.

Weird ways people find us, part the nth
I love looking at our blog stats. Not because I can tell how many people have visited The Attic lately, but because I enjoy seeing how you all find us. The weirdest search terms that have led unsuspecting browsers to us for this month are: "animal gravestones", "pregnant nipples" and "bicycle skeleton". I can't even attempt explanations for these.
