Call for Papers: Young Researchers Forum: Work in Progress

The Network of Junior Researchers in Intelligence History (NJRIH) and the International Intelligence History Association (IIHA) call for submissions to the Young Researchers Forum at the 2015 IIHA Annual Conference.

The NJRIH provides a forum for young scholars working in the field of intelligence studies to discuss their work with their peers as well as established scholars and researchers in the field.

The annual conference of the IIHA will take part in Zagreb, Croatia, from May 8 to 10, 2015. During this conference, young scholars in the field of Intelligence Studies can present their current research – such as master theses, dissertations, or postdoc projects. Participants are welcome to present their work in progress, give an overview of their project, discuss case studies with the group, or focus on methodological or theoretical questions. There is no topical restriction, and we welcome contributions from different disciplines such as history, political science, cultural studies and science. In order to leave enough time for lively discussions, presentations are expected to be 15-20 minutes.
