BCMH Member Alexander Clarke at Kings College London is organising a Conference on the Falklands in April / May 2019.
He says: The conference is to be held at the University of Manchester next April (most likely the 25th & 26th, but still finalising funding/confirming rooms). Currently it's titled The Falklands/Malvinas: War, Media and Society-History and Legacy. So as well as giving a platform for some great papers and discussions on all aspects of the conflict from all sides,it is hoped it will to provide a supportive atmosphere for an interchange between academics, veterans, media and other relevant people to start forging the networks necessary to facilitate the kind of events, programs and publications which would be suitable for upcoming the 40th anniversary. We are also trying to get some sort of publication in place so that the conference will have direct dissemination as well as indirect - however that is in the very early stages of negotiation.
If you have ideas or suggestions, please contact Alexander at email@example.com.
BCMH is supporting this event and further details will be published early in 2019.
