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.

Publication opportunity for education people

Are you currently researching or evaluating any aspect of museum education or interpretation in any discipline area? Do you know someone who is?

If so, MUSEUM EDUCATION MONITOR (MEM), the monthly e-newsletter, would like to list this work in our upcoming February "Free-for-All" 2013 issue. We welcome listings by museum workers, consultants, faculty, and students at all levels of study to do with any aspect of museum education/ interpretation in any discipline area (art, science, history, human rights, etc.).

To assist these research efforts, MEM continues to offer a FREE introductory one-year subscription to any student in a museum education-related course or program. One year complimentary subscriptions are also available to currently unwaged museum educators. Visit http://www.mccastle.com/Public/MEM.aspx for details.

To share research or evaluation with others around the world, please send an e-mail to chris@mccastle.com that includes:
- name of project
- question(s) [no more than 50 words, please]
- how the data will be presented
- principal researcher(s)/ evaluator(s)
- site(s) where research is being conducted
- time span
- contact information
- key words/labels to describe the project [no more than 4 or 5, please]
- photo associated with you or the project [optional]

All listings are free of charge and displayed in their language of origin. Deadline for the February MEM is Friday, February 22.

Please get in touch for more information about this call or to discuss your research. I look forward to hearing from you!
