I think we've all been a bit sidetracked as of late! All of the posting boards, RSS feeds and usual blogs have gone very quiet around here. Olympic fever has taken over! Perhaps now that it is over, things shall return to normal and I will be inundated with news.
Until then, apologies for the state of quiet that this blog has become in recent weeks. Summer is always slow, but soon we will be gearing up for the next academic year again!
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.
