From RAF Bomber Command to Human Trafficking

9 May @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Tickets are now on sale for the world’s largest festival of public science talks, which will see eighteen researchers take to the stage in venues across Lincoln. University of Lincoln researchers will be speaking at three venues across the city: The Pessimist, The Cardinal’s Hat, and The Victoria. As well as two talks, each event will also include a quiz with prizes to be won, and a viewing of Creative Reactions – artworks inspired by the speakers’ research.

Pint of Science Event: From RAF Bomber Command to Human Trafficking

Human trafficking: Victims hidden in plain sight
Dr Chloe Wilson (Lecturer in Law)
We have seen the documentaries and watched the TV dramas, ‘Taken’, ‘Hidden’ and ‘Liar’. Each portray a world of underground crime, police interceptions and international gang syndicates. But what is the reality – who are the victims and how are they treated? This talk will explore the fundamental issue of the way victims of human trafficking are identified and treated by organisations in the UK.

Scarecrows, gremlins and RAF bomber command
Dr Dan Ellin (International Bomber Command Centre Archivist & Lecturer)
It is usually accepted that Bomber Command’s role in the war was downplayed and veterans were neglected. As a consequence, veterans’ testimonies often focus on the dangers, the ‘chop rate’ (the high attrition on operations), and some of their coping mechanisms, their comradery, superstitions, and rituals. Using interviews and documents from the International Bomber Command Centre Digital Archive, my research considers how the concepts of Scarecrows and Gremlins are used as part of the cultural remembrance of RAF Bomber Command.
