Marcel Proust and the Medicine of the Belle Époque is an exhibition to be held at the RSM Library.
It opens on Monday 12th November 2018 and it runs until Saturday 26th January 2019.
The novelist and essayist Marcel Proust was the author of possibly the greatest work of twentieth-century fiction, A la Recherche du Temps Perdu (In Search of Lost Time), a work that fairly bristles with medical references, metaphors, and doctors who possess varying degrees of ability. Proust’s life (1871-1922) spans almost the whole of the Belle Époque period (1870-1914), a time when profound new scientific and philosophical theories were challenging the very foundations and forcing a re-appraisal of human knowledge, theories and exploration the like of which had never been seen before.
The exhibition is drawn from the collection of the RSM Library and includes works by members of Proust’s family (his father and brother were both distinguished doctors) and by some of the leading French physicians of the day, many of whom are depicted in fictional guise throughout A la Recherche du Temps Perdu.
Open to all

The Heathrow Airspace and Future Operations Consultation is running for eight weeks from 8 January until 11.55pm on 4 March 2019. It is seeking feedback on changes to our airspace and future runway operations.
Have your say
This consultation gives you the chance to have your say on three key areas:
Celebration of Sherlock Holmes' birthday for an immersive, interactive dining experience at The Ivy Café, Marylebone featuring music, guest interaction and a theatrical performance from the actors of Scripts for Supper.
For one night only, you'll be treated to a murder mystery evening with the legendary detective, Sherlock Holmes and his assistant, Dr. Watson. Created in partnership with Naked Grouse, you will be welcomed to The Ivy Café, Marylebone with a specially crafted cocktail, A Study In Scarlet which combines Naked Grouse Whiskey, cranberry juice, ginger liqueur and lime.
Alongside the entertainment, the evening will feature a three-course meal.
The Ivy Café, Marylebone’s society have been called together by chairman Sir John Innsbruck of Bleak Street for a celebratory reunion dinner.
But something is amiss on the streets of London.
Notable members of other societies are being found dead at the dinner table, and when Mr Innsbruck becomes the newest victim in this string of inexplicable deaths, there's only one man who can help crack the case. But is this one even too perplexing for our eponymous hero, Sherlock Holmes?
What is really going on? Is their foul play afoot? Could it be that Professor Moriarty is back? And what happens if the bodies keep on falling?
We must all work alongside Holmes, Watson and the famous Irene Adler to solve this criminal case, following a series of individual clues hidden in objects, written on notes or played out by our actors.
Elementary my dear Watson.
