Call for papers: Canadian intelligence history


"Canadian Intelligence History at the Crossroads," a conference on the history of Canadian intelligence activities and organizations, will be held at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa on 3-5 October 2024. 

The following is the call for papers issued by the conference organizing committee:


In partnership with the Greg Centre for War and Society, the North American Society for Intelligence History (NASIH), and the Canadian Association for Security and Intelligence Studies, we are proud to announce a conference on Canadian intelligence history in the fall of 2024. The conference is timed to reflect on a landmark change in Canadian intelligence practice. The year 2024 will mark the 40th anniversary of the birth of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS).

We are soliciting individual paper, panel, and roundtable proposals on any relevant aspect of Canadian intelligence history, including the broader societal context, relationships with allied partners, and comparative studies.

Each paper proposal should include both a 250-word abstract and a one-page CV that highlights relevant knowledge. A panel proposal should include: a panel outline (that includes the chair, commentator, and three paper titles); three abstract proposals of 250 words each; and a one-page CV from all participants. All documents should be included in one e-mail. A roundtable proposal should include four to six speakers. Each speaker should provide a title and a 100-word abstract. A one-page CV for each participant must also be included. All of this must be contained in one e-mail. Please e-mail all proposals to Dr. Steve Hewitt at s.r.hewitt@bham.ac.uk. Proposals will be considered starting in January 2024.

The conference will also include sessions devoted to intelligence history scholarship by undergraduate and graduate students. Interested students are encouraged to submit individual paper proposals to include a 500-word abstract and a one-page letter of reference from a member of their department. Proposals for student papers should be e-mailed to Dr. Timothy Sayle at tim.sayle@utoronto.ca by June 30, 2024. Student participants will be notified by early September 2024 if their papers have been selected.
