Landscapes of Secrecy:The CIA in History, Fiction and Memory
29-30 April 2011
East Midlands Conference Centre, University of Nottingham

The overall purpose of this conference is to allow many of the world’s leading scholars in the field to explore and debate the history of the Central Intelligence Agency and its place within the wider realms of post-war American politics and culture. There will be a focus on the place of the CIA in the post-war of American diplomacy and foreign policy, and also the more general public reception of the subject through the medium of memoirs, film and fiction.The conference coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs episode, when the CIA’s failed attempt to overthrow the Castro regime in Cuba placed the Agency under the public spotlight and triggered debates over its role in US foreign policy that have never really subsided.
