This session outlines the rhythms and geographies of the Hull Blitz between 1940 and 1945. It draws upon images and documents from the Hull History Centre, plus an outline of how aerial warfare was developed and theorised in the interwar period.
These new materials augment the broader lecture on a connected theme that Professor Atkinson presented in 2016.
The University of Hull has been changing the way people think for 90 years. Our motto, Lampada Ferens, translates as ‘carrying the light of learning’, and over the years, we’ve shared that light with thousands of people from across the world. As England’s 14th-oldest university, we have a proud heritage of academic excellence, and a history of creating and inspiring life-changing research. And we have no plans to stop helping to build a better world.
