The Women’s Intelligence Network (WIN) connects, supports, and promotes female scholars who work in the field of Intelligence Studies. WIN is hosted in Europe and the UK by the King’s Intelligence Studies Group (KISG) and in North America by the North American Society for Intelligence History (NASIH).
The overall goal is to get more research by and on women promoted, supported, and elevated in the field of Intelligence Studies
Membership is free, and the network welcomes people of all gender identities and sexual orientations as members. If you are interested in becoming a member of WIN, you can send an email with your current position and research interests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WIN organises brown-bag lunches with one of three overall themes:
WIN awards the annual Polly Corrigan Prize for the best publication in Intelligence Studies by a female author.
WIN runs a (wo)mentoring programme for emerging female scholars. It aims specifically to support PhD students and early career researchers in the critical moments after finishing the PhD. If you are interested in participating in the programme – either as mentor or mentee – please get in touch (email to: email@example.com).
WIN meets regularly at conferences, such as at the annual conventions of NASIH, ISA, and others. At these meetings emerging and established scholars come together informally to network and share information on relevant conferences, research initiatives, and fellowships.
WIN also publishes gender-inclusive syllabi in Intelligence Studies.
During a time when there is still a strong gender imbalance within the field of Intelligence Studies, WIN hopes to bring research by and on women to greater prominence within the field and the larger scholarly community.
