H-Intel provides a venue for scholarly discussion and collaboration on intelligence. It seeks to unite scholars, practitioners and researchers working in the fields of intelligence history and intelligence studies, covering any area and period from the classical era to today. H-Intel's partner organization is The Intelligence Studies Section (Section Chair, Stephen Marrin) at The International Studies Association. If you're interesting in editing, blogging, or contributing to H-Intel, please contact Stephen.
Below you will find the latest CFP's and Discussions on H-Intel, and the latest announcements for Intelligencne Studies at the bottom of the page.
I wanted to let the group know that Harvard University's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs is now running a paper series as part of its Homeland Security Project. Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and if accepted, paper submissions will follow (papers are relatively short and are expected to be solution-oriented). The Belfer Center may hold conferences or other events in the future built around published papers. Here is an excerpt from the call:
As you will receive an H-Intel message from me too, now and then (Constant Hijzen at Leiden University, the Netherlands), I am happy to forward you the call for papers for the conference below.
All the best,

Table of Contents
The journal Intelligence and National Security has announced that it is establishing a new section or feature, in part with the objective of supporting broader engagement with the practitioner community and citizens, and also enabling more timely discussions of contemporary issues in intelligence practice and study (the editors note it can be thought of as something akin to the publication Foreign Affairs, "serious but not fully cited"). The full announcement and description of the initiative ('Perspectives on Intelligence') can be found here:
Is anyone aware of historians (esp. those working in APD and new institutionalism) who have deployed role theory, organizational theory, or theories related to organizational conflict in their work? I'd greatly appreciate any leads.
