"Making Nature: How we see animals" – Wellcome Trust Exhibition with Marcus Coates and Volker Sommer
Kicking off a year-long exploration into our relationship with nature, this major exhibition examines what we think, feel and value about other species and the consequences this has for the world around us. It brings together over 100 fascinating objects from literature, film, taxidermy and photography. Organised around four themes – ‘Ordering’, ‘Displaying’, ‘Observing’ and ‘Making’ – the event charts the changing fashions of museum displays, examines the search for an authentic encounter with nature, and looks at how humans have intentionally altered other organisms.

It is with great sorrow, that we post sad news about Thomas Quick, one of our outstanding former BSc Anthropology students, who has unexpectedly died of cancer – at the onset of a promising career and the young age of 29. His grief-stricken family kindly shared some memories about Thomas, from which we quote below. Myself and other colleagues at UCL who got to know Thomas as academics and administrators treasure the privilege and pleasure this has been. Our thoughts are with the loved ones he leaves behind. His fiancée Sarah and his family hope to acquire a piece of UK woodland that can be maintained in his memory, with an emphasis on careful stewardship to encourage biodiversity.
