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. Membership is free. 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 panels on a wide range of topics. Over 160 scholars, practitioners and members of the general public attended the conference. We viewed it as a great success.


Our next conference will be in hosted at Trinity College at the University of Toronto, from November 12th through 14th, 2020. Should you wish to submit a panel or paper proposal, please do so before March 1, 2020. Please send a 100 word abstract and CV to s-j.corke@unb.ca.

In addition to our scholarly conferences NASIH also has a Twitter account.
