Forming Panel on Intelligence Culture for ISA 2018 in San Francisco

Mark Stout's picture

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.

This panel could keep its present focus on American intelligence culture, but we would be quite open to comparative papers or papers that looked at non-American intelligence cultures.

If you’ve got a paper that you’d like to offer for inclusion in this panel, please let me know.  You can reach me at

Thank you very much.
