WRITING THE AIR WAR AND LINCOLNSHIRE
This two-day conference, jointly hosted by Bishop Grosseteste University and the University of Lincoln, will be held on 11 and 12 May 2024.
The International Bomber Command Centre (IBCC) in Lincoln will be our setting to address questions about how air war has been represented across a broad range of textual forms – biography, memoir, letters, newspapers and inscriptions, as well as in other media such as plays and films.
‘Air war’ includes both world wars, as well as the interwar period and the cold war. Lincolnshire’s place in the narrative of air war forms a key theme throughout, although regional perspectives will intersect with global ones to produce broader cultural understandings of aerial warfare.
A number of temporary exhibits will be on display. There will be opportunities to tour the IBCC memorial and exhibition galleries and to attend the launch of a number of related book titles.
