PhD students from University College London’s Student Engagers are curating an exhibition around the theme of stress in the First World War.

Stress brings together a diverse collection of objects, ranging from a preserved coal miner's lung' to magic lantern slides from Francis Galton and Ambrose Fleming, with many on public display for the first time. The objects selected will challenge visitors to re-assess the effects of the First World War on the mind, the body and the environment.

It will also uniquely allow visitors to engage with the researchers behind the project. Curators will be present in the exhibition space throughout its run, open for discussion and each bringing their unique interpretation of the objects on display and their understanding of stress in the First World War.
