Lucy is currently completing her Masters degree in art and visual history at the Humboldt University in Berlin. Her research traces the cultural history of the body, medicine, and mental health through its representation in eighteenth and nineteenth century visual media. In her study she places a focus on transcultural perspectives of history examining how images of illness and knowledge about illness traveled across the globe and formed common tropes.
