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.

Interesting conference for those in NA

Call for Proposals:
The Historical Administration Program Association Symposium is looking for presenters for its 36th Annual Historical Administration Program Association Symposium: The Business of Museums: Not-for-Profit is No Excuse
Often it feels as if the "business" of museums is survival. As museum professionals, creating something with limited resources becomes a badge of honor. But with museum closings in the news and donor support dwindling, organizations must create sustainable practices that allow them to weather uncertain times.
Museums must move past survival and start thriving. Are you looking for strategies for coming safely through the present storm of closures and reduced funding? Or ideas to make your not-for-profit profitable?
Consider presenting at the 36th Annual Historical Administration Program Association Symposium on Saturday, April 13, 2013, on the campus of Eastern Illinois University .
PROPOSAL DEADLINE: Dec. 31, 2012 Extended to January 15, 2013!
