Out of the Shadows Conference
Out of the Shadows is a FREE, “exciting and intriguing 1-day conference” and will take place at Swansea University’s Singleton Campus on Friday 15th September – REGISTER HERE
The conference aims to bring together academics, teachers and students (14-18 years old) to hear from leading experts in the fields of UK and U.S. intelligence. Pupils will also gain experience of learning in a seminar setting, through role-plays conducted by PhD students.
Dr. Luca Trenta, who heads the British Academy funded project ‘Out of the Shadows‘, aims to bridge the ‘intelligence gap’ in school curricula when it comes to understanding the complex workings of national intelligence agencies and covert paramilitary operations. The topic permits students to engage with a sensitive and relevant issue, fostering debate within the classroom and dispelling reliance on conspiratorial explanations of foreign policy.
Teachers may bring up to 15 pupils and are encouraged to register by Friday 21st July as places are limited.
The engaging day will be full of talks; debate; workshops; role play and mock campaigns. Please see below for further details.
Interested teachers and schools can REGISTER HERE
