CALL FOR PAPERS
MONARCHY AND MODERNITY, 1500-1945
University of Cambridge
8-9 January, 2019
Macquarie University will host the annual IAFIE conference in Sydney, Australia from July 22-25, 2018. The goal of the conference is to further promote intelligence education and provide an opportunity for networking among scholars and practitioners from academia, the private sector, and government. We seek papers from those who support and are aligned with the Mission of the Association. We are particularly interested in panel, paper, and poster proposals that speak to the conference theme of “innovating intelligence education.”
In preparation for an online update of the Encyclopedia of U.S. Intelligence (Taylor and Francis, 2014), a call for papers is being issued. A comprehensive reference work that examines U.S. intelligence practices, history and education, the Encyclopedia of U.S. Intelligence has been designed to be holistic in nature and examines intelligence issues, practices and history from both academic and practitioner perspectives.
The American Political Science Association conference is right around the corner (August 31 to September 3). I look forward to many fruitful and fun discussions about new projects and research in beautiful San Francisco. We'll have our newest political science titles at the booth (Lynne Rienner Publishers, #610). If you'd like to meet during the conference, just drop me a note (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up a time.
See you soon!

A colleague and I are putting together a panel on intelligence culture for the International Studies Association conference in San Francisco next spring and are looking for further contributors.
The two papers we have at the moment deal with American intelligence culture. The first, by Dr. Lesley Copeland, questions the role of Pearl Harbor in the American intelligence culture. The second, mine, discusses American intelligence cultures before the CIA.
