Stress: Approaches to the First World War (exhibition)

Institute of Archaeology PhD students have worked on a new exhibition Stress: Approaches to the First World War which opened to the public this week.

UCL’s Student Engagers bring together a diverse collection of objects, ranging from a preserved coal miner’s lung to magic lantern slides from Francis Galton and Ambrose Fleming, to explore the theme of stress in the First World War.

Curators will be present in the exhibition space throughout its run, each bringing their unique interpretation of the objects on display and their understanding of stress in the First World War.

The exhibition will run in UCL's North Lodge on Gower Street from 12 October to 20 November, from 1-5pm Monday-Friday and on selected Saturdays.

A number of afternoon and evening events will complement the exhibition. These include a meditation event to showcase the physiology of stress, a guided walk around Bloomsbury, and a commemoration event on Armistice Day.
