I would like to take a quick opportunity to welcome our new PhD students to the department as well as a new group of MA students! We are so exciting to have a new group with us once again this October (for MAs) and for the next few years (PhDs).
We are always looking for new students in the department to contribute to The Attic Blog, so if you are interested please let me (the Moderator) know!
Otherwise, please enjoy reading through our old posts and looking forward to new ones in the coming months.
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.
