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 Studies Research Week

Tomorrow begins Research Week here at the department. It's a wonderful chance for on-campus, off-campus and *really* off-campus PhD students to get together to talk, learn and all around have a great (academic-related) time. And then we're going to Liverpool to tour museums for the weekend.

As such, this blog may either be very quiet or very not, depending on how many of us remember to post!
