RAF Museum 2020 Research Lectures Call for Speakers

Published on: 8 November 2019

Call for Speakers — 2020 Research Lecture Programme.

Personnel of 32 Squadron in front of Gloster Grebe

The RAF Museum seeks proposals from postgraduate students, early-career and established researchers for our annual Research Programme held at sites in London, Cosford, Wolverhampton and Lancaster.

The Museum’s 2020 Research Programme will examine Air Power in its broadest sense encompassing not only the history of air warfare and the RAF, but also related fields such as archaeology, law and ethics, museology, international relations, and strategic studies.

Each talk lasts an hour followed by thirty minutes for questions.

The RAF Museum Research Programme includes the following series:

• The Trenchard Lectures held at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London.

• The Legacy of War Lunchtime Lectures at the RAF Museum, London.

• The Cold War Lunchtime Lectures at the RAF Museum, Cosford.

And New for 2020:

• Battle of Britain Lunchtime Lectures at the RAF Museum, London
.
• Air Power Seminars at the University of Wolverhampton.
• Air Power Lectures held at the Centre for War and Diplomacy, Lancaster University.

As part of the Museum’s ongoing commitment to encourage debate regarding Air Power and the history of the RAF we also host research discussion panels involving a series of shorter-talks followed by an open discussion.

If you are interested in delivering a Lecture or proposing a discussion panel please send a title, 300-word abstract of your proposed paper or panel and a one-page CV to the Museum’s Historian, Dr Harry Raffal (harry.raffal@rafmuseum.org) by Friday 13 December 2019.

A PDF of this call for Papers is available to download.
