The 36th International Churchill Conference will take place on October 29-31, 2019 at the Washington Georgetown Marriott in Washington, D.C. just a half mile from the National Churchill Library and Center.
This year’s conference theme is Churchill: Masters of our Fate.
The month of the conference coincides with the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Churchill’s involvement in the Cold War (he famously coined the term “Iron Curtain” in 1946) will be explored by leading scholars.
The opening night reception will take place at Anderson House, the historic headquarters of the Society of the Cincinnati, on Tuesday, October 29. Winston Churchill visited Anderson House during a trip to Washington, D.C. on January 16, 1952.
Following the conclusion of the conference on October 31 at noon, there will be a screening of Churchill and the Movie Mogul, a brilliant new documentary by filmmaker John Fleet about Winston Churchill’s relationship with Alexander Korda, the primary founder of the British film industry. Fleet, who wrote about this subject in Finest Hour 179, will speak directly after the screening.
Award-winning author Andrew Roberts, author of the best-selling biography Churchill: Walking with Destiny, has joined our lineup of speakers.
More program details will be posted during the coming months. We look forward to seeing you in Washington this October.
