The North American Society for Intelligence History (NASIH) was formed in the summer of 2016 by Sarah-Jane Corke and Mark Stout. Our goal was to encourage and support the study of intelligence history in Canada and the United States and to highlight the accomplishment of those in our field. However, membership is open to anyone interested in the historical study of intelligence anywhere in the world.

If you are interested in joining NASIH please hit the Membership tab above.


NASIH held its first conference in October of 2019 at the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC. The conference featured 39 papers on a wide range of topics and hosted over 160 scholars, practitioners and members of the general public. In 2022, the second NASIH conference was held virtually and featured 42 papers and presentations. Our 2023 conference will be held in person in Calgary, Alberta in summer 2023.

In addition to our scholarly conferences, we run a variety of programs in support of our mission. See the other tabs in this website for further information.
