Policing the Past: The CIA and the Landscape of Secrecy

November 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Since the creation of the CIA, its history has constituted something of a battleground. On November 2, as part of the 2018–19 “Impact of the Past” lecture series, Richard Aldrich, Professor of International Security from the University of Warwick will explore the CIA and its relationship to history, the media, and the secret state, a journey that has involved both cooperation and extreme skepticism. His lecture will argue that historians have a crucial role to play not only in the curating of national memory but also in mediating between the public and the more shadowy parts of government.

“The Impact of the Past” series will feature lectures by eminent historians showing the relevance of the past to the present.

Lectures will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Wolfensohn Hall at the Institute for Advanced Study located at 1 Einstein Drive in Princeton, New Jersey. Lectures are free and open to the public. Registration is required. For more information please visit: www.ias.edu/impact.
