Ageing is a process that will affect us all. Throughout human history we have tried to slow down and even reverse the effects of ageing.

Dr James Stark (Research Fellow, Leeds Humanities Research Institute) will explore how and why a wide range of anti-ageing technologies and products gained popularity in the 20th century, how our understanding of ageing and youth has changed and reflect on what it means to age.

This talk is part of the the Weston Gallery Exhibition ‘Inspiring Beauty: No7 ~ 80 years of making up the modern woman‘, running 15 January to 17 April. Hosted by Manuscripts and Special Collections, free entry.
