May I draw your attention to the attached Call for Papers for the Royal Air Force Museum Conference on ‘Meaning, Memory and the (Mis-)Remembered Past’. The conference will be held at the RAF Museum, London, on 5–6 September 2022. The call closes on 11 April.
This two-day conference will explore the history we ‘remember’, the history we ‘misremember’ and the history we have ‘forgotten’.
The conference will bring together an interdisciplinary field of scholars working on topics which relate to air forces, their personnel and technology, the economies and societies they interact with, the conflicts in which they have engaged, and the global and international context with which they are connected. The conference will present research which explores the meaning of parts of the past and establish their importance to the historical whole.
The Museum is keen to encourage submissions from a wide-range of academic fields including but not limited to: Business and Economic History; Gender Studies; International Relations; Law and Ethics; Air Power, Aerospace and Military History; Race and Ethnicity; Social History; and Strategic Studies.
Proposals for papers of 20 minutes should consist of a title, 300 word abstract, and a short biography (maximum 200 words).
I would be grateful if you could forward the call for papers on to colleagues and students who may be interested in making a proposal.
An online version of this call for papers is available from the RAF Museum website: https://www.rafmuseum.org.uk/london/whats-going-on/news/call-for-papers-raf-museum-conference-2022/
