Lucy Jane Santos
Lucy is an expert in the history of twentieth-century leisure, health and beauty with a special interest (some might say obsession) for radioactivity. She has been studying these areas since 2010 and is currently reading for her PhD at the Open University (due for completion in 2019). She has a BA in Egyptian Archaeology (UCL), an MA in Arts and Museum Management (University of Greenwich) and a MRes in History (University of Goldsmiths).
Lucy has appeared as a contributor on TV and Radio and her historical research has been featured in a range of publications. As part of a performance group, Lucy worked to provide educational services to heritage organisations and museums including demonstrations, lectures and reminiscence events. She is currently a guest lecturer for the American Institute for Foreign Study and is a trustee of the Women’s League of Health and Beauty.
Lucy specialises in producing high-quality, well-researched, accessible content aimed at a wide readership.
I have worked for a number of museums, arts associations and cultural institutions providing a wide range of services including curatorial, events management, and consultancy.
I am available for lectures, workshops, consultancy, and as a contributor for TV, radio, podcasts and print.
