Writing the Air War and Lincolnshire Conference at the International Bomber Command Centre, Lincoln, convened by Bishop Grosseteste and the University of Lincoln and sponsored by the Lincoln Record Society.

The conference titled ‘Writing the Air War and Lincolnshire’ will be held at the International Bomber Command Centre (IBCC) in Lincoln on the 11th and 12th of May 2024. Convened by Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) and the University of Lincoln, plus generously supported by the Lincoln Record Society (LRS), the IBCC has been chosen due to its close connection to the conference theme – as well as the values of recognition, remembrance, and reconciliation that it promotes.

The event has been organised and contributed to by BGU Professors Claudia Capancioni, Andrew Jackson, and Heather Hughes.

''We are thrilled to have a varied and rich programme that together with established names, includes up-and-coming ones offering diverse perspectives which pay attention to, for example, civilian experiences of war, Caribbean RAF service volunteers, transnational resistance, and Black British airmen.”
