In February 2015, the Royal Air Force Museum launched its Research Programme for 2015. This programme consists of two public lectures series and conferences. The first series, The Trenchard Lectures in Air Powers Studies, is delivered by emerging and established researchers and they explore a variety of air power related topics ranging from historical themes to contemporary issues. These lectures are held in conjunction with the Royal Aeronautical Society and the University of Wolverhampton. The second series, the First World War in the Air Lunchtime Lectures, is delivered by emerging and established researchers and explore key events and air power developments from the conflict. These lectures form part of the RAF Museum’s HLF funded exhibition, the ‘First World War in the Air’.

The time has come for me to start planning the Research Programme for 2016. As such, the RAF Museum is seeking proposals from postgraduate students, early-career and established researchers for these lectures series.  If you are interested in delivering a lecture, please send a title and 300 word abstract of your proposed paper, plus a one-page CV to me at

If you have any queries then please feel free to email at the above address or post on this thread. A copy of this year’s Research Programme can be downloaded here.
