New exhibition on campus: Health From Cradle to Grave

An exhibition highlighting the work from English at Loughborough University’s Health Humanities Research Network will be held from 27 March-23 April in the Martin Hall Exhibition Space.

The themes covered include research on health, society and culture across time and space into material objects, art, poetry, life writing and literature. Representing periods from the early modern to the contemporary, the exhibition shows transhistorical connections between objects and words.

The exhibition has been curated by the co-leads of the Health Humanities Research Group, Dr Sara Read and Dr Jade French. Sara commented: “There will be an eclectic mix of artwork, documents, and objects on display. There will be items from which we as humanities researchers have drawn inspiration and creative pieces which have been inspired by our research.”

The exhibition will be open Monday-Wednesday, 12pm-2pm and is free to view. There will also be a closing event with readings from contributors on Tuesday 23 April, 4pm-6pm. Please note the exhibition will be closed on Monday 1 April and Tuesday 2 April due to the Easter closure period.


There is step-free access to the gallery via a ramp and side door. During opening hours, there will be an invigilator on duty in the gallery. If you require their assistance, then please alert them on arrival by calling them or waving at them – the entrance to the gallery is fully glazed and the main entrance door should be open.
