I am a historian of Britain in WW2, having published widely in the area of gender history, labour history and the history of technology in this period. I am looking for one paper and a commentator to join a panel I am proposing at the Society for the History of Technology Conference in St Louis, MO, October 11-14, 2018. The paper I am proposing focuses on the plans that the British government developed in their attempt to suppress dust in British coalmines in the Second World War.
