TE LAWRENCE SOCIETY SYMPOSIUM 21-23 Sept 2018 The programme for our next symposium in 2018 is now finalised. We have another exciting line up of international speakers, presenting on a wide range of subjects. Papers will explore the forgotten comrades of Lawrence, his friendship with Gertrude Bell, his honours and awards, and his war beyond the Arab Revolt, with lesser known activities in the Arab Bureau and other spheres of influence in the Middle East. The support given by the ANZACs to Lawrence, the artists who painted Lawrence, Armoured car and RAF raids in the Hejaz, and a look at Lawrence's role in the war with an Ottoman perspective, will complete the presented papers programme. We have a whole afternoon devoted to Gertrude Bell where we will welcome the directors of 'Letters from Baghdad', view the film, and explore the Bell archive held at Newcastle, with the archive director. We also have a unique opportunity to visit and learn about the Lawrence archive rapidly being expanded at Magdalen College. A special exhibition will be presented for us in the college Old Library. The full programme is now published in the Symposium section of the Website.
