BRICKS + MORTALS: A history of eugenics told through buildings  Hear the story of UCL’s pioneering eugenicists through the landmark buildings and spaces named after them. Bricks+Mortals turns the buildings of the Bloomsbury campus into an exhibition, uncovering a history hidden in plain sight.

I was very happy to be able to put some of my (slightly excessive) research to good use and help a bit with this excellent project. So many thanks to curator and colleague Subhadra Das for the fulsome credits!
