Silhouettes of fallen soldiers forming part of the national ‘There But Not There’ project are coming to Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) as part of a special Armistice Symposium on 21 November.

The Symposium, organised by the History team and postgraduate students at BGU, will showcase their original research on the human experience of war to mark the centenary of the Armistice. Topics including soldier sanitation and wellbeing will be presented on, alongside soldier suicide, flight experience at Cranwell, conscientious objection, and Lincolnshire home front poetry.

In addition the event will feature ten transparent seated military figures. These silhouettes form part of the national ‘There But Not There’ project which aims to place a representative figure for every name on local war memorials around the UK, providing a powerful act of remembrance.

This event is free and all are welcome to attend, but registration is required no later than 4pm on Friday 16 November 2018. For all other queries, please contact the convenor Dr. Claire M. Hubbard-Hall by emailing:

The event is generously supported by BGU School of Humanities, the City of Lincoln Historical Association branch, and the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.

If you’re interested in studying the past you can find more information on our range of History degree courses, including our new BA Military History degree, on our website or by contacting our Enquiries Team.
