Formerly known as the North American Society for Intelligence History (NASIH), the Society for Intelligence History (SIH) is a membership organization for scholars who focus on intelligence history, who are an increasingly large group but who do not fit neatly into other historical subfields and thus need a dedicated organization for their field. We meet that need, providing programs and conferences for academics and practitioners to meet each other and discuss the field’s current trends, their ongoing research and findings, and projected future models of study. Our deliverables are reliable and effective methods for engagement that stimulate historical conversations about intelligence.

The Society for Intelligence History (SIH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered in the state of Virginia.
